Meet the team

Meet the PC Times team - local people who work for the local paper, gathering local news and helping local businesses. 

  • Leanne Chamberlin - Editor
    After reporting for the PC Times for two years, Leanne stepped into the role of owner/editor when the paper's previous owners (Duncan and Fran Pardon) retired after 22 years. Leanne has a background in communications with experience in the corporate, not-for-profit and school sectors.
  • Gail Henry - Advertising
    Gail has worked in community newspapers for more than 20 years, and is a wealth of newspaper advertising knowledge! Gail is happy to provide advice about how to get the best results from your advertising budget.
