This paper was first published in 1911 as the "Waipa Post" by A.G. Warburton, and is still owned by this family. It has been published twice weekly throughout. At first it was a tri–weekly broadsheet but is now a bi–weekly tabloid. It has always fully covered the local and rural areas and all sports. The Te Awamutu Museum has the only existing copies 1911 to 1932 on micro–film, all are accessible to researchers. The collection now includes issues up to the 1990's – Once a month there is a print of "What's On", a list of meetings of all clubs and organisations, and contact numbers. This is an incredible service to the public, offered by the i-SITE Information Centre.
