Citizen gets an overhaul and new look for Lincolnshire

By Sarah Lagan

The free Lincolnshire Citizen has had a complete overhaul including the introduction of a new weekend news section.

Launched in 2001, the Citizen distributes around 56,000 copies with editions in Louth, Skegness, Sleaford, Boston and Spalding.

There
will be around eight extra pages for the weekend news section provided
by journalists from the Citizen’s paid-for titles including the
Skegness Standard and Boston Standard .

They will also help
provide more coverage for the paper’s regular features such as
gardening, food, fashion and money as well as for the extended
entertainments and classified section.

Introducing the jobs
section is a new generic careers advice feature. A television listings
section has been added as well as quizzes, leisure listings and an
extended motors pull-out.

The masthead has been changed to the US font, Interstate which reflects that used in the paid-for titles.

Managing
editor Tim Robinson, who led the Citizen’s redesign, said: ” The
Citizen is now much cleaner and better designed with more valuable,
beefier content.”
