About Us

As background, for those that do not know us already, both Melanie Grevis-James (Editor) and Kym Bierenbroodspot (Designer) have extensive experience in publishing, writing, editing, graphic design, and marketing, spanning over 30 years each. We love creative challenges, and we both love our local community – hence why we decided to take over The Western Echo to ensure its future and to continue providing local news relevant to our community. We both run local businesses in The Gap and actively support a number of community groups, offering volunteer assistance where we can. We are excited to be publishing The Western Echo as a joint venture – using our combined skills and continuing our long-time friendship.

We look forward to getting to know our local community even more.

If you have any questions at all, please just ask us. All the best,

Mel & Kym
