Monday?s brighter with Coffs Coast Advocate
IT may have been too early for some, but that didn't stop several hundred people turning out yesterday morning for the launch of the new Monday edition of the Coffs Coast Advocate.
Coffs Coast Advocate staff dished out free sausage sandwiches to all and sundry in Harbour Drive, including unsuspecting motorists driving past, while Gloria Jeans served freshly brewed coffee to ensure everyone was alert for the event.
This, together with free copies of the paper and a beautiful cake reproducing its front page, guaranteed everyone who attended the launch arrived at work with a full stomach and fully briefed on the weekend's local and national sports and news.
Deliverer of the month, Alan Thompson, cut the first 'official' bundle of papers, and distributed it to the crowd, including Coffs Harbour mayor, Cr Keith Rhoades, and member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser.
Star FM breakfast crew helped promote the event through an outside broadcast of their morning program from in front of Banjo's.
The Coffs Coast Advocate's new Monday edition, featuring the Inside 12 Sports Xtra liftout, out-and-about photos from the weekend and coverage of local events and residents, the Monday edition is the only place to catch up on all the local and national news and sport up-dates.
