Here it is: the new-look ‘Witness'

2007-11-13 00:00

Dear Reader:

What you see today is the result of many months of planning. We have produced a newspaper that not only packages its news stories more concisely and looks more modern, but also contains a number of new features.

One of these is a comprehensive contents panel, on the front page, which gives a better indication of what is to be found inside.

Another new feature is the Link page, which will allow readers to submit photographs and items of community news. This new concept, we hope, together with a redesigned website (, will provide a closer link between readers and the newspaper.

Our choice of news has also changed. In line with the findings of extensive research, we will continue our traditional watchdog function, and will continue to publish sobering stories about the realities of life, but will now also attempt to report more fully on the everyday events and achievements that remind us of how much there is to be thankful for.

We hope that you will enjoy it and look forward to your reaction.
