New editor


The Ashburton Courier welcomes new editor Daniel Tobin to the team.

Daniel started in the role last week and has taken over the editorial helm from seasoned journalist Linda Clarke, who has gone to a communications position with Ashburton District Council.

Daniel, who has a wealth of journalism experience, spent 10 years working as multimedia editor at the Christchurch Press and the past couple of years based in a communications role at Invercargill City Council.

Daniel is excited to be back in Canterbury and getting to know the people and happenings in and around Mid Canterbury.

His parents grew up in Ashburton, and he has many fond childhood memories spending his holidays in the district.

“Ashburton has been a big part of my life, with my parents growing up here, many holidays were spent with relatives in Ashburton.”

He is looking forward to learning more about his new home town and continuing the delivery of community news offered by the Ashburton Courier.

Daniel can be contacted by phone at 3087664 or email:
