Dear valued subscriber,

Thanks for your support of local journalism. Your subscription helps to fund stories that really matter to our local community. Without you, many of them would never be told.

Whether you are an essential worker or not, there is no denying the coronavirus has impacted us in one way or another.

But it has been heartening to see the Bundaberg community show their resilience during these uncertain times.

Those beginning to feel the onset of cabin fever were given a welcome reprieve this week with the easing of some COVID-19 restrictions, but things are still far from being back to 'normal'.

As we continue to practice that social distancing, I wanted to remind everyone of a brilliant new feature subscribers can find on our website.

The puzzles many of you love filling out in our print edition have now made the shift online. Make sure you head to the new puzzles section of our website here.

You can also find them through the 'burger' menu via our lifestyle section.

Readers who go to the home page regularly will see a crossword panel in the Subscriber Only section, which will take you direct to the puzzles.

 

ONE of the most loved things for many people about the daily newspaper experience is doing the crosswords and puzzles and now that feature is available to our digital subscribers too.

Each day, this site will host a new national crossword and Sudoku puzzle. They are interactive, so you can enter words and numbers on-screen.

Doing them with a friend or family member encourages collaboration and communication, not to mention being lots of fun.

Our puzzles can be done on both your desktop computer or mobile device, whether your smartphone or tablet.

The timing couldn't be better for those looking to keep their minds active during coronavirus movement restrictions when we are all being told to stay at home.

If you have a friend or family member that loves to put their puzzle skills to the test now is good time to join up with only days left of our popular $1 for the first 28 days deal.

You can find the details here.
