‘Birth of new baby’ will be wel­comed

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

OUR first son was a mere baby when we first ar­rived in Wer­ring­ton, the best part of 40 years ago.

And our first Peter­bor­ough Evening Tele­graph popped through the let­ter­box, as it has since then, six times a week, ev­ery week.

The roads in Wer­ring­ton in 1974 were al­ready laid, the shrubs and trees had been planted, and the first houses in the new town­ship had be­gun to be built.

They said, some said, that it would never work.

Now, some 40 years later, the changes are won­der­ful.

The shrubs and trees are mag­nif­i­cent, schools are lively and achiev­ing, a li­brary and sports fa­cil­i­ties are well used, and the com­mu­nity of Wer­ring­ton is some 15,000 peo­ple strong.

The only thing that’s con­stant is change, my mother said.

And change it is with the Peter­bor­ough Evening Tele­graph – your news­pa­per, our news­pa­per.

Wer­ring­ton folk and thou­sands of other readers will miss pick­ing up The ET from the door­mat, on a daily ba­sis.

But we will be aware that, on­line, the im­me­di­acy of lo­cal news will not be lost to us.

And I’m sure we will come to ap­pre­ci­ate a bo­nanza-sized Tele­graph each Thurs­day, from next Thurs­day.

If you can keep the gutsy heart of what was The Evening Tele­graph within its new weekly for­mat, then your pre­week­end pa­per will be much ap­pre­ci­ated. We brought a new baby to Wer­ring­ton. And now an­other baby is born. We look for­ward to wet­ting its head on Thurs­day.
