Dear Reader

Today, as you will see from our front cover, The Gazette is making some news of its own with a different look and feel.

Along with its sister paper, the Herald on Friday, your Gazette is getting a makeover. Thanks to your loyalty, our two weekly newspapers remain among some of the best-read in the country. But we think we can look and feel even better - and we are beginning making those changes from today.

World -class newspaper designers have been commissioned by our parent company, Johnston Press, to come up with a new, fresh and appealing design for our pages.

We won’t be changing the things you like most, such as our up-to-date weekend news and sports coverage or our popular four-page puzzle section.

But there will be added features and extended sections, such as more community news in our Down Your Way pages.

This new-style page two is itself designed to help you find your way more easily aroundthe newspaper.

Friday’s Herald will be very different , too, with many new features - including a 16-page enterainments and what’s on section.

We hope enjoy them - please do let us know what you think. These are your papers.

Keith Ridley
