Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

THIS week is Lo­cal Newspaper Week. It is a cel­e­bra­tion of ti­tles like the Mac­cles­field Ex­press.

The event is to show to ev­ery­one across the coun­try the im­por­tance of hav­ing a lo­cally­ac­count­able, vi­brant and dy­namic lo­cal me­dia.

Of course, your Ex­press is not just about the newspaper – we also have a grow­ing online pres­ence.

As well as keep­ing you in­formed of what’s go­ing on lo­cally, our other pas­sion is fight­ing your cor­ner. We stand up for what you tell us is im­por­tant in your lives. We right the wrongs. We cam­paign. We in­ves­ti­gate. We’re here to make a dif­fer­ence.

In this fast-chang­ing


glob­alised world, the Mac­cles­field Ex­press aims to be the con­stant in your busy lives, rooted in your com­mu­ni­ties.

We go back a long way to­gether – to 1811 in fact. We have helped gen­er­a­tions of Max­o­ni­ans by keep­ing them in­formed, en­ter­tained and in the fore­front of the minds of those in power.

It cov­ers a wide rangera of stan­dards,ar in­clud­ing ac­cu­racy,ac the pro­tec­tionpr of chil­dren,ch pri­vacy,va ha­rass- ment and pub­lic in­ter­est

We are sub­ject to laws, in­clud­ing li­bel and con­tempt of court

All our jour­nal­ists are fully trained in all as­pects of the pro­fes­sion – in­clud­ing the right of re­ply. The ed­i­tors’ code and ethics un­der­pin all they do

Be­fore we pub­lish a word – online or in print – ar­ti­cles go through a rig­or­ous check­ing process

We live in the com­mu­ni­ties we serve and deal with the same peo­ple time and again. We would be noth­ing without their trust

We are fair, ac­cu­rate and im­par­tial – we have no axe to grind. We are here to in­form, in­ves­ti­gate and to en­ter­tain

Mac­cles­field Ex­press editor Gareth Tid­man said: “We want to make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of peo­ple liv­ing in Mac­cles-
