Howard supports role of local press

Gormer athlete Sally Gunnell and Leader of the Opposition Michael Howard have written articles in support of the regional press as part of Local Newspaper Week.

Both will be made available to editors for use in their papers during the Newspaper Society’s promotional week, which runs from 3-9 May.

In his piece Howard said he believed more readers were turning to local newspapers because they were more trusted than other media and “provide a solid focus for local communities”.

Gunnell will highlight the important contribution the regional press makes to local and national charities and the health of local communities.
