Dear Reader,

While the country endures the continuing restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic, there has never been a more crucial time to know what is happening in your area.

These restrictions have a severe impact on people's daily lives and mental health, throwing up new challenges for families, businesses, schools, the NHS and our community.

And in an era of misinformation and fake news on social media sites, staying informed with reliable journalism is key to staying safe. We want to make sure you continue to stay in the know with your trusted local paper.

We have recently launched our digital subscriptions, where readers can get unlimited access to our online journalism 24 hours a day starting from just £2 for the first two months.

Readers are relying on trusted news brands more than ever before as they seek to make sense of the latest developments in the pandemic and what it means for them and their loved ones.

It has widely been acknowledged that local newspapers have provided a vital service in keeping the public informed and it is absolutely right that we are offering digital subscriptions to our online newspapers to as many people as possible.
