A message from the Editor of the Daily Echo…
Times are challenging for the local newspaper industry.
The Coronavirus outbreak has hit us hard due to declining advertising revenue and a reduction in newspaper sales while our readers are in lockdown.
People are more reluctant to leave the house to go and pick up their local newspaper – and of course, we completely understand.
However, for us to continue to provide the best quality trusted local news and information – particularly during these times – we still need the funds to support our important journalism.
That’s why we are now offering you the opportunity to have your local newspaper delivered safely to your door, and the chance to register for a digital subscription for our website, so we can continue to provide you with the best possible trusted local news.
It couldn’t be easier to have your local newspaper delivered – just call 0800 953 0227 and our home delivery team will take your details securely over the phone. We’ll arrange for the paper to be brought to your door free of any delivery charges for the next six weeks, over the peak of the pandemic, and you may have an elderly relative, neighbour or friend that this could be ideal for too.
If you would rather have a digital subscription, this will give you unlimited online access to your local news.
Registering for a digital subscription costs less than £1 a week and gives you access to a wide range of site features and content, including daily news and sports emails.
For those of you who do not wish to support us through a digital subscription, much of our content will still be free to read. You will not need to subscribe for major breaking news stories, and vital coronavirus news and information will continue to be provided free to all users.
Please help us by supporting local, trusted journalism with either a home delivery local newspaper order or a digital subscription. There’s never been a more important time to do so.
