IT is always encouraging to receive a pat on the back for what one is doing, but it is doubly pleasing to be praised by your peers and this is the case with an article that has appeared in Spanish language newspaper group El Noticiero.
The story, which appears in each of its editions, refers to the work of Euro Weekly News over nearly 20 years and congratulates on what we have achieved. Whilst the Spanish piece is illustrated above, the English translation reads:
Euro Weekly: hard work and sacrifice, the success of a weekly English newspaper
“Almost 20 years of day in, day out work have served to achieve the best success ever seen in the English language Press sector on the Costa del Sol. That’s why we must publicly congratulate Steven and Michel Euesden, who set up in the area with a project to create a weekly paper to provide information to the thousands of English-speaking residents and visitors.
“Years have gone by, and yesterday (May 19) Steven and Michel launched their EuroWeekly (it is published every Thursday) with 232 pages, a record for national press. It is an enormous newspaper, which includes the special 104-page supplement ‘Costa del Sol Success,’ covering all the information about our popular tourist area.
“EuroWeekly, which has its central offices in Benalmadena, has an edition for the Costa del Sol and another five weekly editions: Costa Blanca North, Costa Blanca South, Axarquia, Almeria and Mallorca. A family newspaper company which definitely deserves to be watched and studied, especially for its great success and the way it has been accepted by both readers and advertisers all the way along the Mediterranean coast.”
