Mareeba Residents Celebrate Return to Print

Posted 13 Aug '20

The Clarence Valley Independent’s decision to return to print is being widely celebrated by residents and staff at Mareeba Aged Care in Maclean.

Whilst the digital publication was popular, the weekly print edition of the paper paused briefly when COVID-19 restrictions were introduced and was much missed by Mareeba residents.

 Mareeba Aged Care, Director of Nursing, Rachel Bennett said, “Our residents love when the paper arrives each week. They sit back in their chairs, relax and enjoy reading the paper cover to cover. It’s a bit of ritual at Mareeba and it’s great to have it back.”

“Local newspapers are an important way of keeping us all connected in our community, which is particularly important at the moment with social distancing in play,” Rachel concluded.
