A whopping big mudcake to celebrate 140 years of news
A 140TH birthday celebration doesn’t go unnoticed especially at the Goonellabah offices of The Northern Star.
With a humungous caramel mudcake, sandwiches and hot nibblies for morning tea, both the Star editor David Kirkpatrick and Regional GM NSW Steve Bowden thanked the staff for all their hard work.
Both acknowledged the changing landscape of media where newspapers were bowing to the digital online world, but effectively as a team, we were still getting the news and stories out there.
As a business we can’t function without our advertisers and acknowledgement was given to Hutley’s Butchery in South Lismore, who is only four years younger than the paper, having been established in 1880.
So despite the changing medium on which people read their news, the staff of the Northern Star are looking forward to celebrating 150 years in 10 years time.
