W***ing*** Gua***** to cost £1

Recommended Posts

A certain  local (alleged) newspaper is to increase its cover price to £1 - a rise of over 50%.

 

Will we get  more actual  news stories or just more regurgitated press releases.

I glance at it to see if I am still alive! Suspect they realise those who still buy it do so out of habit and if you will part with 65p you will probably still part with £1 - and it will have a free supplement with it now :lol:

The editors reason for price increase is lack of people advertising in the paper.Maybe i should go back to specsavers but this paper is full of adverts,the free magazine will probably have tv listings for next week,which are normally given with every weekend paper anyway

I stopped buying it years ago due to the lack of news.   Advertising sheets should be free,  Newspapers paid for. 

At the time there was more ink on my hands than on the paper after reading it.   For a short time I did read the online version but couldn't get on with the layout

Agree with Cleo - Do they still have obituaries? - I'm still waiting to see mine...

 

Peridot

 

 

They still carry them complete with such descriptions as   "wife of the late Mr Fred Bloggs....."  When did the word "widow" fall out of use?
