HISTORY OF THE AGIE
The Agie Advertiser is the brainchild of Sonja Bosman.In the 1990s, Kuils River used to be referred to as a “sleepy village”.People would live here, but would work and conduct their business elsewhere.It was, however, soon realised that the existing Kuils River businesses would have to be introduced to the inhabitants of the town in some way or other.This was the birth of Die Agie, which would thence be distributed free of charge to the inhabitants of Kuils River.Sonja Bosman was the editor from 20 February until 21 May 1992.
Chris du Plessis took over the reins as editor and, as new owner of Die Agie, he published the first 3 700 copies of the newspaper on 28 May 1992.Since those modest early days, Die Agie (also known as the De KuileAgie) has grown to become a domestic name in Kuils River.Currently, 10 200 copies are printed and distributed weekly.We are thankful that, through the years, we have been able to render – with great commitment and dedication – a quality product and a reliable service for the benefit of our advertisers.
