Northern Valleys News – helping to grow our regional community.


Bringing together the knowledge and resources within the region, making it accessible to all and enhancing life in the region.


To create a paper that supports and promotes a growing region which enhances residents and visitors experiences.

THE TEAM: Jackie Shervington & Tamieka Preston, Northern Valleys residents who have a combined 50 years experience in Marketing, Communications and design.


As so often is the case, in the challenge to find a name for a new local newspaper, we stumbled upon what we believe is pretty exciting stuff and long overdue.

We required a name which captured all our region – did not bias any one particular area and allowed sub brands and localities to be upheld.

Northern Valleys is a branding concept which is quickly gathering support across our business people and community representatives. Our aim is that maybe one day it will be recognised just like the Swan Valley and Avon Valley.
