Editor’s Comment: Why the Worksop Guardian is making a difference in the local community

This week is Local Newspaper Week and I am going to take this opportunity to highlight the positive role the Worksop Guardian plays in making a difference in the local community.

The Worksop Guardian is YOUR voice and it is our job to campaign for the things that are important to you.

We have a number of campaigns running at the moment, including our efforts to save the Worksop branch of the Royal British Legion.

Then there are our long running campaigns - The Guardian Rose which celebrates and rewards community heroes, culminating in a lavish annual awards ceremony, and our weekly Freebie reader offers which give added value to our readers as well as supporting local businesses.

Every year we support and publicise the fundraising exploits of scores of individuals and charities, from cake sales to marathons, from charity treks to sponsored head shaves.

We showcase all that is great and good about Worksop and the surrounding area.

In this digital age we are more than just a local newspaper, we are a 24/7 multimedia operation.

Time and time again we are the first to break the big local stories, and we have moved from publishing once a week, to publishing multiple times a day via our website worksopguardian.co.uk

Indeed, our website is now updated at least once an hour throughout the day, and it is this sort of news coverage that has cemented our reputation as the most trusted source of Worksop news and sport.

I am proud to lead a small team of talented and dedicated journalists in bringing you all the local news and highlighting the issues you care about.

But I am humble enough to acknowledge that we don’t always get things right, and that we can carry on improving what we do.

So if you have any ideas as to how we can make the Worksop Guardian better then please do get in touch with me.

Together we can carry on making a difference.
