From the Editor

Welcome to the Devonport Flagstaff website

The Flagstaff has always prided itself on providing the local community with insightful and relevant news and views. I used to think of this as, "News you can't get online." The fortnightly printed newspaper and our philosophy and commitment to quality and integrity are not going to change, but we also need to be accessible and relevant in the digital era.

Our new website will now contain a digital (online) version of the Flagstaff, which can be read on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The live links in the ebook will enable readers to click through to advertisers.

We know the Flagstaff is posted to family members and former residents out of town and overseas, so our new online edition will make it easier for those readers to keep up to date with local news. It will also extend the profile of Devonport, globally as well as nationally and regionally.

We are excited about this development, which will benefit readers, advertisers and Devonport as a whole, by getting news about the suburb out to a wider audience. We will continue to enhance and improve the website and we look forward to your feedback.
