The 56-page Advertiser includes an 8-page Property pull-out plus a large community news section as well as features on local history, reader’s photographs, sport and a what’s on guide to local events.
Editor Andy Richardson said: “I was born and raised in north Durham so I know that people in this area regard it as their weekly source of community news and advertising. I’m delighted they can now enjoy a bigger and better product than ever before.
“Through our Community Focus platform we’re encouraging readers to send us their stories and pictures for publication. This is very much a newspaper written by local people for local people and I’ve been delighted by the reaction so far.”
The Advertiser has been relaunched on a part-free, part-paid basis with a cover price of 30p. In the initial phase, 25,000 copies are being home delivered, 5,000 are being made available for sale in newsagents and complimentary copies are available at strategic pick-up points across the area.
