The Valley Profile is an independently-owned monthly community newspaper that delivers 100% local news in the Thames Valley region each month. 


We deliver 12,000 copies to every letterbox and business in the Thames Valley, connecting approximately 22,500 readers in the Hauraki Plains, Paeroa, Thames and Thames Coast.


This much-loved community newspaper began nearly 30 years ago as the Plains Profile by a group of hard-working volunteers passionate about their community. In 2020, local journalist Teresa Ramsey offered to take over the Profile, renaming it The Valley Profile to reflect the new area of the Thames Valley.  With a background in daily, community and digital reporting and sub-editing over the past 25 years, Teresa’s vision for the Profile is to continue its strong community focus, covering general news and events, as well as celebrating our local people.
