Egham News - - NEWS -

IN Oc­to­ber 1985, the Sur­rey Her­ald changed from its broad­sheet for­mat to a tabloid. It cel­e­brated the fact with the pho­to­graph on the right.

Well, nearly 30 years on, we have de­cided that big­ger is bet­ter and, from next Fri­day, you can find all the news, fea­tures, sport and let­ters from your area in the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser be­cause we are go­ing large.

And with those broad­sheet pages we will be able to pack in so much more con­tent for our read­ers to en­joy.

To cel­e­brate this mile­stone, we recre­ated the im­age used by the Her­ald & News nearly three decades ago and, as you can see, our ed­i­to­rial team is clam­our­ing to see what’s inside those big pages.

And it is this Her­ald & News team who will con­tinue to pro­vide the cov­er­age you value in the Elm­bridge edi­tion and the brand new Run­nymede and Spelthorne edi­tion of the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser.

The team is lead by news ed­i­tor Oliver Florence, who has lived in the area for most of his life.

Sports ed­i­tor Clive Youl­ton will con­tinue to bring you the match re­ports, team and in­di­vid­ual sports news and fea­tures from all your favourite teams.

A for­mer Wok­ing FC player, Clive is known for keep­ing a tally of the num­ber of dif­fer­ent sports he cov­ers in his col­umns and try­ing to ex­ceed the to­tal year on year.

Our ded­i­cated chief re­porter Char­lotte Tal­bot is well-known in the area and can be guar­an­teed to get to the bot­tom of the story.

She will be ably as­sisted by our hard­work­ing re­porters Eleanor Davis and Matt Strud­wick, who will be out and about gath­er­ing the sto­ries that are im­por­tant to you, our read­ers.

Of course, the wider re­sources of the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser’s ed­i­to­rial team will also be pro­vid­ing con­tent for the pages. This in­cludes ded­i­cated Elm­bridge re­porters Tom Smurth­waite and Char­lotte To­bitt, as well as a full team of re­port­ing, sports and pho­to­graphic staff and the dig­i­tal team from www. Get­Sur­rey.co.uk who pro­vide up-to-the-minute cov­er­age of break­ing news and events and will even tell you where the traf­fic hold-ups are on our live blog from 6.30am to 8pm Mon­day to Fri­day.

So, while we cel­e­brate the 122 years of news gath­er­ing that has been the Sur­rey Her­ald & News, we are also look­ing for­ward to a big­ger fu­ture in the broad­sheet pages of the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser. And we hope you will join us.
