About Us

We want people to feel good about the place that they live and work, and to be able to have a positive impact on their everyday lives.

We want people to feel good about the place that they live and work, and to be able to have a positive impact on their everyday lives.

We employ professional writers to be the voice of the community. Our objective is to inform and inspire and to be at the heart of that inspiring community. In the words of Jodie Jackson, we aim for “Rigorous journalism reporting on progress”.

We still believe in the power of a traditional weekly newspaper, available both in print and online. We just believe in doing things differently.

We also believe that there is a need for the weekly ‘long’ read to be complemented by a new online platform called “Today” which is designed to offer in one place everything that you need to know and will want to know about the area that you live. We just want you to smile!

Instead of scrolling through a social media site full of doom and gloom and being interrupted by intrusive advertising, you will be able to search for the information that you need and, hopefully, be delighted by the curated content that our editors will enable you to discover. Everything that makes it more joyous to say “I am from….” or “I live in….” Everything which reflects life in that rich community with people at the heart of all that we do.

We also have a commitment to our staff that they are part of something important, that has a purpose and a future. We pride ourselves on our high standards, our professional attitude, our personable and committed approach and our warm, friendly working atmosphere.

Local is important. Local is where we live and work. Local is worth fighting for, for ourselves and the next generation.

Thank you
