I’M delighted to say that my new job here at the Cumbernauld News and Kilsyth Chronicle is just like coming home.

Originally from Lanarkshire, being back here is a very happy return to familiar faces and west coast accents.

I’m planning to put the readers back at the heart of the paper, including a new look to this page - this week we introduce the first of our guest reader columnists, speaking on an issue of his own choosing and close to his own heart. All feedback happily considered for the letters page. There’s a reader photo of the week too, and we want to hear your suggestions and nominations for each spot, in person or by email. Starting next week we will have a Facebook and Twitter column, too. Fellow tweeters be sure to follow me @NewsandChronEd, the paper @Newsand Chron and on Facebook under News and Chron.

This is your paper, and your views are always welcome.
