About Ridge Times

The Echo and the Ridge Times’s office is situated in Secunda, Mpumalanga. The Ridge Times is distributed free to 35 000 households every Wednesday, and the Echo (20 000 copies) is distributed every Thursday in bulk to businesses. We cover a large area on the Highveld which comprises the towns of Bethal, eMbalenhle, eMzinoni, Evander, Kinross, Kriel, Leandra, Secunda and Trichardt. We believe we are the watchdogs of the community and fight for the rights of the “little” man on the street. We strive to bring to our communities accurate and non-biased news and information about the local government, crime, various organisations, schools, sport and entertainment. The Ridge Times boasts weekly comprehensive sections for Property, Classifieds and Vacancies.
