This month we have our new bumper edition of 20 packed pages to keep you informed and entertained. The natural growth of The Nubian Times/TNT News allows very little time for doing my own thing but enables me to deal with more fundamental, humanitarian, social and community issues.
Within my role as Editor-in-Chief, this month I have made it my business to make time for International Women’s Day (8 March). A substantial amount of the publication has been dedicated to the work, tribulations and, of course, the successes of us women; highlighting the great things we are accomplishing on a daily basis in the local area.
Happy Easter everyone! Especially to those of you who cannot attend the Hands on Hair/TNT Easter Egg Hunt which takes place at Alexandra Park on Easter Sunday at 12 noon ‘til 3pm. It will be packed full of family fun – races, hula hooping, cakes, games, eggs and many more fun activities. Free Easter eggs to a select few of those that register by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, what can you expect from your extra pages? For starters, as well as more local news than ever, go to page 13 for our LGBTQI column on Ruby Rose who is an inspiration for the many who are dealing with identity issues. On that same page check out Manchester’s Bipolar Sunshine breaking boundaries, and – TNT’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw – Sam Sutton’s titillating tales. Plus there’s a new What’s On page dedicated to bringing you the hottest happenings about town, plus theatre, TV and gig reviews.
There are also lots of competitions and coupons throughout the newspaper that will help you save, save, save! Just cut them out and away you go.
As if all of that wasn’t enough, you can pop over to thenubiantimes.com to read extended versions of many of our print articles as well as new pieces such as our take on why our girls are headed to Syria. Make sure you get involved by commenting below each post.
Last but not least, does anyone have any photos of the Aba Sindi centre, the Bull Ring, Moss Side Precinct or Alexandra Road when it was a bustling high street? Send me your favourite and we will publish them with your name. Come on, I can’t wait!
P.S. Happy Mother’s Day when it comes ladies.
