In June 2013, CXPRESS Garden Route Newspaper celebrated 15 years of bringing news, views and entertainment to local residents and visitors – an apt time indeed to strengthen our online presence with this bright new website.

Whereas space is always at a premium in our hard-copy publication, the opposite is true for cyber space and we invite you to make the best of this user-friendly opportunity to share your stories and photos with us. CXPRESS is published and distributed every week on a Wednesday, but at www.cxpress.co.za you can submit news any day of the week. When we run out of time or space on newsprint, this forum provides the perfect spot to include the many extra stories and images received. Now get typing – we're looking forward to hearing from you!
