Love the Times? Get it straight to your inbox

THE way we consume news is changing.

Once upon a time, if you wanted to find out what's going on in your neck of the woods, you had to go down to the newsagency and pick up a newspaper.

For many North Burnett locals, it's still the first thing they do on Thursday morning: pop to the shops to pick up the weekly edition of the Times.

But for others, especially the younger generation, print has given way to digital, and they would much rather read our stories online, whether on a desktop, laptop or smart phone.

Here at the Times, we are all about giving our readers choice.

Now, we have a new way to give you the best local content we have to offer.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, you can sign up to receive newsletters straight to your inbox containing our best stories over the past few days.

From the latest in business, to community news, sport, council and court, the newsletter will take you through the latest local news and issues.

We promise not to bombard you. We expect to send a couple a week at best - unless there is massive local news like, heaven forbid it, a bushfire.

We're excited to be able to offer you this new way to stay informed and connected to your local community, and receive our unrivalled local news reporting.

You can sign up to receive and manage your newsletters here.

Community news has always and will continue to come first. Thank you for your continued readership.

And if you ever want to change how you get the latest in local news, you can update your preferences in the Newsletter section under your account on our website.

We have also introduced a new premium online subscription model.

For the introductory price of just $3 a week, you will get access to all local news, state news and a national news feed.   You get to read everything happening in the North Burnett and surrounds, and the wider region including the South Burnett and Bundaberg, as well as the best in state and national news, business and sport from our sister title The Courier Mail, and much more.   Click here and here for more information.
