Issue 501 – Congratulations on 500 issues

THE last issue of the White Horse News, dated the 10th November 2011, celebrated 500 editions and 20 years of your free, community newspaper.

Thank you to everyone who has written letters of congratulation. Here are a selection of the comments left on the town’s online forums and our own twitter and facebook sites:
• “Nice one WHN and here’s to another 500 issues!”
• “… a proper little community paper, celebrating all the positive happy stories as well as covering any news.”
• “Brilliant front page montage.”
• “We love the White Horse News, we read it from cover to cover. Thanks for a good local paper which is very helpful and informative.”
• “Westbury is very lucky to have its own independent local paper. The WHN is always full of useful, relevant and interesting articles about our town.”
• “The best freebie newspaper I have ever received.”
• “I like the White Horse News… full of news and information and advertising all relevant to Westbury and surrounding area”
• “A first class publication, I have had the pleasure of meeting and being quizzed by their reporters and I have to say, they were accurate, impartial and nice people… Long may it continue and it puts a lot of other publications to shame, that’s for sure.”
• “The best free newspaper I’ve ever read, by a long way. Here’s to the next 500”
• “I also wish the White Horse News every success in the future. They have served the town well.”
• “Well Done WHN!”
• “This is a terrific paper for news locally, always well balanced, non biased reporting from the WHN. This is the only free paper I have ever come across where the majority of people actually look forward to their next copy. As ever I will carry on advertising with the WHN as I’ve always found you get a better response when advertising with them, unlike other papers.”
• “A good local paper”
• “Congratulations to WHN and of course to the team as well!”
• “Congratulations on 500 issues of the White Horse News over 20 years”
• “Congratulations to WHN for 500 superb editions!”

Thank you to all who have supported the paper over the years and helped the White Horse News – one of just a handful of independent newspapers left in the country – run as a success for so long.
