THERE are only two more weeks to go till we unveil our bright new look – your feedback has been invaluable in helping to shape the future.

Among the suggestions have been a new look for our community news, some top tips for shoppers looking for a bargain and more interaction between the readers and the paper. I hope to be able to deliver on all of them.

We’re giving some regular features a bit of a facelift too, and all in all hope the whole package you will enjoy.

We’re very conscious that everyone is watching the pennies, so there are some fantastic reader offers starting from the launch week, freebies and subscription deals which will all add up to a great package every single week.
