Readership Profile

I am delighted to introduce the Southern View, joining the Nor'West News and the Bay Harbour News in the Mainland Press stable of high quality, locally owned community and lifestyle newspapers.


The paper reaches a prime demographic of urban, suburban and lifestyle readers, with average household income 20% higher than the Christchurch average. It is delivered to homes in the urban suburbs of Cashmere, Hoon Hay, Halswell, Somerfield, Hunstbury, Murray Aynsley, Beckenham, Oaklands and St. Martin's and the suburban and lfestyle areas of Lincoln, Burnham and Rolleston, Tai Tapu and Prebbleton and to over 2,600 rural delivery households in the surrounding countryside. In addition our delivery team distributes the paper to businesses in the delivery area and in central and South Christchurch and a network of proprietary display stands in high traffic areas.


Editorial content will include news, views and feature stories, plus eye-catching photographs. Regular features cover such varied topics as food, fashion, health & beauty, gardening, real estate, sports, motoring and the arts, as well as profiles on local identities. As with our other papers, the Southern View has its own dedicated editor, Breeze Robertson-Friend, to ensure the focus on local content. Breeze will be supported by our news team of two journalists and our photographer.


Our design and production team, under the leadership of Mary-Jane Steffens, is focused on putting toghether high quality, eye-catching advertisements and a professional layout to produce a visually attractive paper for readers and a premium advertising medium. To further enhance the visual impact, our cover pages and inside spread are printed on premium white paper. As a fortnightly paper, the Southern View will have a long shelf life enjoying extended readership over two weeks, delivering high exposure for advertisers.


We look forward to helping you to build your business with our advertising solutions.
