The Hutt News is one of New Zealand’s earliest and longest running community newspapers. It was established by Walter Harold Smith in 1927. Smith, a retired farmer, thought the time was right for Lower Hutt to have its own paper. The neighbouring borough of Petone had managed to sustain a newspaper, the Hutt and Petone Chronicle, since 1887. By the 1920s Lower Hutt’s population was approaching that of Petone’s.
