Please feed the Chook

PERTH’s favourite Chook, The Perth Voice is a very rare bird.

Very few places have their own independent news outlet, like the Chook, delivered free every week to thousands of homes in the cities of Vincent, Bayswater and Perth. 

To do this the Chook relies on advertisements from healthy small business. Regrettably many of them, smashed by the pandemic, are yet to recover. 

If you know any advertisers who could benefit from promoting their products and services suggest to them they advertise in the well-read Voice. And this includes Tradies!

Better still get them to send an email to val.gonzalez@, or text/call Val on 0488 237 811. 

We have a raft of ad sizes to suit all budgets, including some that beat social media ad rates hands down. And it’s so easy to arrange: just leave it to Val and her colleagues

Or, as with Britain’s Guardian News and a host of other independent news media, you can make a direct, voluntary contribution – one off or more often – to help fast track the Voice’s pandemic recovery. 

Every dollar bolsters the vital cause of the responsible journalism in The Perth Voice, a newspaper you have trusted for over 20 years. For more information, follow the QR code to

Very grateful

DEAR Chook, I have enjoyed your publication for many years though I have sometimes been tempted to offer my services as a proof-reader.

Your determination to carry on during the crippling Covid years is admirable, and I hope my small contribution will be of some assistance.

I look forward to the continued interest provided by your variety of reporting and features and wish you every success. Cathy Westerman Salisbury St, Bayswater 

Chief Chook’s comment: Thank you so much Cathy. Your considerable financial contribution – and from many readers – fills us with confidence for the future. So much so, we now have a small ‘gift’ for you. You are right: our proofing has suffered under covid-19. But now, we have Yours Truly (also the publisher and ed-in-chief) tripling up as proof-reader for all our weekly Voice and Freo Herald editions.
