At The Courier we want you as a subscriber to have that extra connection with Ballarat.
It begins with the local news and sport; the reason you signed up. But there is a lot more we would like to offer.
Subscriber groups that give you a forum to discuss local issues in a civilised space without the usual knee-jerk stupidity and personal attacks social media is prone to. In Ballarat, we want to discuss ideas, not declaim prejudices, and we think you do too.
Then there is the special offers we delight in handing out to subscribers.
For instance, how about tapping into Ballarat's burgeoning foodie culture and delight in what it has to offer. You can prove your love for the humble toasted sandwich and see what new heights it's reached at the Plate Up food festival.
Take it to the next level in our toastie competition. Simply purchase a toastie at any of the participating restaurants and submit your review HERE (50 words or less). The best reviews will be invited to a special toastie degustation lunch. So get tasting and get writing.
Please see below for a couple of heartwarming Mother's Day stories that are just perfect for this special day. To Mothers all over the region, we salute you!
