A BRIGHT new era begins this issue with your new-look White Horse News, printed in full colour for the first time.

After 26 years in black and white, your favourite  free fortnightly newspaper is now in full colour, bringing all your local news, photographs and adverts to life in glorious colour.

White Horse News has been running since 1991 and has sister newspapers in Melksham (Melksham Independent News, published since 1981) and Frome (Frome Times, published since 1999); all under the same family-owned company, Wiltshire Publications Ltd.

In August 2000, the company bought its own web offset printing press, which is based in Holt, near Melksham, where over 37,000 copies of all three papers have been printed at the premises every fortnight (10,000+ copies of White Horse News; 13,900+ copies of Frome Times; and 13,700+ copies of Melksham News).

Owners of the company, Ian and Susan Drew, have decided now is the time to enter the world of colour and whilst their own printing press will cease production, they’re sure that local advertisers and their loyal readers will enjoy the new-look newspaper. The papers will now be printed by Mortons, one of the country’s leading newspaper printers on a state-of-the-art press.

“Your White Horse News will still be packed full of local news – news about Westbury, its schools, clubs, organisations and people – but now with the added impact of colour,” said Ian Drew, owner/ editor of White Horse News.

“We are really excited about the new-look paper. We hope it will help cement our place at the heart of the Westbury community and give readers one more reason to enjoy their local newspaper.”
