Great Brak Post since 2003

The post was the inspiration of Margi a long standing resident of this beautiful village of ours, Great Brak River. The publication started out as a 1 page A3 folded newspaper using newsprint paper and no pictures. It has grown into a 24 page community newspaper with 12 full colour pages, the cover and selected inside pages. It is a newspaper that many village residents look out for as it’s a great source for local information. The aim has always been to keep the newspaper community oriented and as enjoyable and informative as possible. There are a number of key subjects featured which have gained a great following, the Sudoku puzzles being one of them. There are a number of regular community contributors who send in articles and information.

So Where are We Going in 2017

We as the new owners of the Great Brak Post are proud to celebrate our 1st year of publications. We are now a 20 page document and will stay this way for the time being. We will grow our distribution in 2017 to a level where we can move into a wider sphere and more outlying towns and communities. We still want more participation from our readers and from our Facebook page which is steadily growing, we would like more mail posted into our post box, let’s hear more from you! We look to the towns businesses and aim to build a sound relationship offering a cost effective promotional and marketing solution. We will strive to develop the brand “Great Brak Post” as a printed newspaper allowing marketers the opportunity to include fliers and inserts for distribution. Our on-line presence now promotes our advertisers and is a further platform for our contributors with the featured articles.

WELCOME

From the Team
dra aan wegreis van die see, is die sonneblomme wat my begroet. Koppe gedraai in my rigting as ʼn verwelkoming, in volle blom, prentjiemooi op die lande. ʼn Kuier by my ouerhuis is nie meer dieselfde met ʼn ouer wat nie langer hier vertoef nie. Ontnugter deur die rolverdeling tussen kinders en ouers. ʼn Moeder eens die versorger, wat begin verplaas na ʼn plek van versorging. ʼn Peetkind wat vakansies by die see baljaar het, neem intrek in sy eie blyplek en staan sy plek vol in ʼn beroep. Plekke, mense, situasies verander ... die enigste konstante is verandering. Dit is tyd om huis toe te kom, die gesels in my kop is dringend en onderhoudend. Die sonneblomme groet in die laatmiddag winterson, die Vrystaatse herfsgekleurde blare en wuiwende ivoorgras, simbole van verandering. Die bekende teerpad uitgerol voor my, Graaff-Reinet se doringbome met lang wit dorings, Langkloof se vrugteboord en die Outeniquaberge wat my terug verwelkom.
How can I embrace change in my life and surroundings? There is no guideline, we navigate this road as we journey along it. I did, however, write down a few pointers to keep me on track. Laugh more often, be less critical of myself and others too. Give more hugs, walk barefoot, reach for the unimagineable and never stop challenging myself. Love the likeable and less likeable changes that come my way. Here’s to a wonderful winter with cosy evenings in front of the fireplace, hot chocolate, brisk early morning walks, good books and your Great Brak Post.
Ek kan nie met sekerheid sê waar ek per geleentheid die volgende woorde raakgelees het nie: die enigste konstante is verandering. Om iets te lees en om dit aan die bas te voel is wêrelde uitmekaar. ʼn Onlangse reis na die Vrystaat bring die volgende belewenis na vore. Onbedagsame trokbestuurders, drie tot vier agter mekaar op die N1, bekende dorpies soos Bothaville, Viljoenskroon en Kroonstad nie langer spogdorpe nie. Slaggate, vee wat langs die pad wei en vlaktes so ver soos die oog kan sien. Die enigste ligpunt vir ʼn gemoed wat swaar
