Easier to Handle
Congratulations on producing a new-style, compact-size Observer.
It’s so much easier to handle than the former broadsheet – no longer necessary to spread it out on the table or even on the floor.
I can even sit in the garden (on a decent day) and enjoy a good read without the paper flapping about all over the place if there’s a breeze!
It’s a great all-round improvement, so well done to all concerned for giving us a local paper in the format that most readers preferred.
Just one little suggestion: could you perhaps expand the index on page 2 to include such items as the crossword, TV guide, nostalgia feature, anniversaries and obituaries etc?
As for the price increase, a whopping 128 pages with new and improved contents represents, in my view, jolly good value for just 75p a week.
I am looking forward to my weekly date with the ‘reborn’ Observer.
