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 April, 2020, local journalist Teresa Ramsey took over the Profile, renaming it The Valley Profile to reflect the new area of the Thames Valley.


The Valley Profile is run by two experienced newspaper professionals, with many years of experience in the industry.

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. 

In August, 2020, experienced advertising manager Nikki Sanders joined the Profile. Nikki began her newspaper sales career in 2001 and has extensive knowledge of the Thames Valley region. She can help you find the best solution to get your message across to your customers.
