Sooke PocketNews: Real News, No PaperABOUT US

Sooke PocketNews is your always-free online community resource. Real news, no paper.

For local readers: SPN provides up-to-the-minute information on local traffic issues, weather, and dining options. We even offer a daily/weekly/monthly horrorscope (err… horoscope). We will be adding new features, and responding continually to community wants and needs. To add your opinion(s), contact us and tell us what you are thinking! To support us, tell local businesses that you get your community news from PocketNews.

For local businesses: If you are a business and would like to advertise with us (and enjoy 40,000+ views a month), look at our advertising page for details. Contact us for more information.

On supporting local: Sooke PocketNews encourages readers to access their news from multiple sources. We are fortunate to have a number of independent publications, most notably The Rural Observer and Sooke Scoop (among others). Each provides a different focus, a different angle, and a different perspective. We also advocate buying locally first. We offer first advertising opportunities to local businesses. However, maintaining this site is a full-time job (and then some). Because those pesky high-maintenance humans producing the content, maintaining the site and promoting content still need to eat and find shelter from the February rain, we do consider out-of-town sponsors who serve the good people of Sooke.

Ultimately, SPN is here for you. We aspire to fulfil your electronic curiosity about the events in our community.
