Started as a voluntary non-profit community service

Peninsula News was started as a voluntary non-profit community service to the residents of the Peninsula in 1999.

It has continued to operate in that spirit over the past 21 years.

Its success has relied heavily on the voluntary efforts and unpaid support not only of its own members, but also of residents and members of local voluntary groups who have submitted items for publication and contributed in other ways.

The newspaper is owned by an incorporated association which has received no income nor paid any staff but has contributed tens of thousands of hours of voluntary time in providing the news service.

An article in Peninsula News stated in August 2000, and it remains the case: "The paper actively encourages all groups and individuals on the Peninsula to contribute their news, opinions and items of interest for publication.

"It also encourages voluntary involvement in all aspects of its production.

"The paper continues to attract volunteers with a range of experience: school students seeking work experience, journalism graduates wanting to break into the industry have all worked with Peninsula News.

"Even the editing and proof-reading of the newspaper are undertaken on a voluntary basis.

"But volunteers have not been limited to literary fields. Work undertaken by community members has ranged from typing to computer configuration and programming."
