Dear Reader,

Thanks for dropping by The Bench News website, serving West Niagara. As of May 28, we have shuttered news operations. We have enjoyed serving the west Niagara communities this last year. Unfortunately, operational costs are much greater than advertising revenue and so we have been forced to cease operations and close the site.

We appreciate your patronage and encourage you to support other news outlets and websites in the region. Local journalism matters. Please visit:

To contact us, you can reach Editor Andy Walker at [email protected]

It has been a pleasure serving you.

Sincerely,

The Bench News
