We are delighted to be participating in this initiative and we hope that all our readers enjoy our special publication that will be included in next weeks paper”

Each title will publish a 16 page compact/tabloid supplement that aims to highlight the unique brand that is regional press. Included will be the key findings from an IPSOS/MRBI omnipoll survey carried out in late September on readership trends and preferences.
