NEXT week, the Herald celebrates 160 years serving the people of Morpeth and the surrounding communities.
On April 1, 1854, the Herald was born and to mark the momentous occasion, the paper will be given fantastic new look and feel.
It is being relaunched in a fresh, modern format, with a new masthead.
Combined with a fresh outlook, our new Morpeth Herald will have a greater appeal to reflect modern ways of life.
However, your favourite local newspaper will still contain all the things which make it essential reading.
Most importantly, we continue to provide the very best coverage of news, sport, entertainment and community events relevant to the area where you live.
We have already made changes to our website and you can expect to see even more up-to-the-minute breaking news going live, together with more video and picture content. To complete the multi-media set, our reporters will be increasingly active on Facebook and Twitter, providing background and conversation to the week’s biggest stories.
We hope you enjoy the latest chapter of the Herald’s journey.
