‘Birth of new baby’ will be welcomed
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.
