Solihull News - - NEWS -

THE Soli­hull News is to cease pub­li­ca­tion af­ter serv­ing the town for close on 90 years.

Founded in 1930 as the War­wick­shire News, it has most re­cently been the free weekly news­pa­per you know and love.

Sadly, the Soli­hull News will no longer be avail­able af­ter the De­cem­ber 21 edi­tion.

But don’t worry – you will still be able to get your Soli­hull news, sport and fea­tures fix.

From Jan­uary 2, the Birm­ing­ham Mail is to launch a daily Soli­hull edi­tion.

Avail­able from Mon­day to Satur­day, the new Soli­hull Mail will fea­ture your lo­cal news, views, fea­tures and sport.

This will be in ad­di­tion to the Mail’s ex­ist­ing diet of sto­ries that af­fect the whole of the West Mid­lands.

Al­lied with the un­beat­able reach of sis­ter dig­i­tal brand Birm­ing- hamLive, read­ers can rest as­sured they will be able to keep in touch with all things Soli­hull.

And our ex­cit­ing new plat­form InYourArea is a place for neigh­bour­hood com­mu­ni­ties and lo­cal busi­nesses to come to­gether to share news, ad­vice and of­fers all in one place.

Reach plc Mid­lands Ed­i­tor- inChief Marc Reeves said: “Clearly, clos­ing the Soli­hull News isn’t a de­ci­sion we’ve taken lightly.

“But with such a strong sta­ble of print and on­line ti­tles that are al­ready im­mensely pop­u­lar across the bor­ough, we know we can con­tinue to serve read­ers and ad­ver­tis­ers with the best lo­cal news and ex­cit­ing new ways to reach cus­tomers.”

Lat­est fig­ures show that Birm­ing­hamLive and other Reach plc on­line ti­tles have a Soli­hull au­di­ence of more than 194,000 ev­ery month.
