Praise for local newspapers

It’s great to hear that the local newspapers within the Archant Media Group have seen an increase in their sales over the last 6 months. I am passionate about supporting the local media, as it is an essential part of the democratic process.
We are fortunate that here in Norfolk we have a vibrant local media, helping to keep the public informed. Sadly this in many places the independent press is under assault by local council’s free newspapers especially in a number of London Boroughs.

Here in Great Yarmouth the Mercury and EDP are fantastic local papers; pushing boundaries and reflecting community concerns. I am sure they will thrive for many years to come.
