The Hills to Hawkesbury Community News started in 1983 by Ron Stettler and was called the Hills TV Magazine. Ron Stettler Printing was located at 27 Reynolds Street, Toongabbie.
The original magazine was printed in black and white and by 1995 Ron was printing a 32 page magazine every fortnight. Each issue was printed on coloured paper so locals could easily see it was a new edition. Over the years the format changed into a colour magazine.
The magazine remained in the Stettler family until it was purchased by Paul & Veronica Jocelyn in 2007 and renamed the Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine. In 2012 it was purchased by Chris Compton, from Compton Media Group and the name was changed to Hills to Hawkesbury Community News. It is now published by Adelphi Printing Pty Ltd as Trustee for the Paton Family Trust.
The magazine has always been a popular read for local residents. With the loss of many of the corporately owned printed versions of newspapers such as The Hills Shire Times and the Rouse Hills Times, a printed fortnightly magazine has become even more important to our local community.
With over 10,000 copies distributed every fortnight, the Hills to Hawkesbury Community News is now vital as a source of local information and news.
