Hello ladies, Love the website, love the facebook page and I think you girls are marvellous. Your magazine has been beneficial in letting me know when events are happening. Keep up the great work!
As I am a fairly new local to P.S I have found the What’s on in our Backyard has become my bible! I have used it to find great local business and things to do for the kids. Best little mag and website ever! you should be congratulated on the great job you do. Thank you 🙂
I am proud to have a magazine born and bred in Port Stephens. Well done, ladies, on your initiative! My favourite features of the magazine are the competitions and “Diary of Events”. The latter is particularly useful come holiday time. During the school break, I took my youngest son and his cousin to The Wetlands as a result of reading the “Diary”. We had a great day!
