The first Fencible settlers started NZ’s first community newspaper “The Pensioners’ Gazette” in July 1848 run by Dr W Bacot of Bleakhouse in Bleakhouse Road, Howick, and Sergeant Ford in Panmure.

We are grateful this paper continues to inform and entertain our neighbourhood.

The proprietors and staff are an energetic and highly-skilled team, always a pleasure to work with, providing the glue holding our community together.
