Local newspaper week is an annual initiative to highlight the important role played by local papers in communities across the UK.
Organised by the local newspaper industry and the Newspaper Society, the theme this year is ‘making a difference.’
Local newspapers - in print, online and on mobile - are reaching bigger audiences than ever before, demonstrating that local news and information remains extremely highly valued.
