Re­former go­ing up in price from next week

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

The Ruther­glen Re­former will in­crease in price for the first time in nearly two years.

From next week, Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 1, your favourite lo­cal pa­per will cost £1.10.

This is due to ris­ing pro­duc­tion and ma­te­rial costs.

De­spite the in­crease, our award­win­ning team will con­tinue to de­liver value for money through the pages of the Re­former each week.

There is no doubt­ing that we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a chal­leng­ing and chang­ing era for print jour­nal­ism, but these are ex­cit­ing times for the Re­former.

Just last month we were named Me­dia Scot­land Re­gion­als news­pa­per of the year and our re­porter, Edel Ke­nealy, was named re­porter of the year and won scoop of the year.

We’ve a packed edi­tion in this week’s pa­per, start­ing with a new weekly fea­ture de­tail­ing road­works that could af­fect your travel in the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area. You can find it on page three this week. Cam­bus­lang was dealt a dou­ble blow when it was re­vealed Cly­des­dale Bank were set to close their branch in the town – and Greggs could shed up to 100 jobs at their Cly­desmill fac­tory.

We’ve got all the re­ac­tion on pages four and five.

If you are look­ing for some­thing to do over the com­ing weeks, we’ve got de­tails of Ruther­glen’s first comic con on page 13, folk singer Ian Bruce’s lat­est gig on page 18 and a tribute concert to for­mer Ruther­glen res­i­dent Matt McGinn on page 31.

Of course, we’ve all the usual fea­tures and you can see what other readers are talk­ing about on our let­ters page (34), all the news from the lo­cal churches on pages 36 and 37 and our unrivalled lo­cal sport, start­ing on page 56.
