The next issue of our local magazine is under construction. Over the last many weeks stories have been written and photos taken for the next issue of Home Range – due out early Summer.

Launched last year, three issues of the magazine have been delivered to about 3000 rural letterboxes in the Gordonton, Puketaha, Orini and Horsham Downs areas.

The next issue is packed with profiles, features, country cooking, local history and as always the Page 3 tractor.

The magazine is made possible with support from Gordonton District Committee and the many wonderful local businesses who advertise with us. If you would like to advertise in the next issue, get in touch.

We will send out a story closer to the time about the magazine, but it’s a-coming. In the meantime, if you have a story or any news about our community for N8N – let us know.

Follow us on Facebook and you can also sign up to regular news emails from N8N.
