WELCOME to this week’s West Sussex Gazette which from today is bigger and better than ever before.
We are introducing a range of improvements to make it an even better weekly read.
We have invested in better quality paper so that our award-winning colour photographs of the West Sussex countryside look even better.
We have also introduced more pages so that we can broaden and deepen our county-wide coverage.
And we have gone back to our roots - with a renewed focus on all that makes West Sussex such a special place in which to live and work.
New countryside and village features will be the hallmark of the improvements.
And, as you will see, we are introducing a range of new columnists who will share their knowledge and expertise of the county.
Your West Sussex Gazette is the oldest newspaper in the county. It was founded in 1853 in Arundel.
It is also the last remaining broadsheet newspaper - and has a huge reputation for its quality editorial.
Editor In Chief Gary Shipton said: “We are delighted to be making major improvements to the WSG.
“These will all build on the paper’s renowned strengths. We are not doing anything radical - merely making it even better than it currently is.”
He invited amateur photographers to send in their stunning photos of West Sussex, its villages and the local wildlife for possible inclusion.
He also repeated the invitation for organisations to send in their reports of local news - and to fill the letters’ page with their views and poems.
