Our efforts had been so well received in fact, that we had to keep expanding the scope of The Coastie to nearly three times the size we had initially hoped to produce.
So now we embrace the challenge to repeat a good thing while attempting to improve the value of our small local publication for all involved.
Interest has been significant in anticipation to this year's production already, which is very encouraging for us.
Bigger print run & wider reachThis time, we are aiming to build even more of a bridge between the Tutukaka Coast and Whangarei City, since coast and town seem inextricably linked, both offering their specialties to locals and holidaying visitors alike.
So we are planning to print more copies than last year and to distribute these in a few more important locations in and around Whangarei, doing our bit to help divert unsuspecting travelers from roaring north on highway 1 and discover the virtues of our beautiful Tutukaka Coast.
With the help of our local businesses we are hoping to again create what some people have been referring to as a "keeper". Being able to show off some of our coastal treasure makes it all worthwhile to us.
