Reformer going up in price from next week
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.
