Newbury Weekly News shortlisted for prestigious national award

THE Newbury Weekly News has been shortlisted in the weekly newspaper of the year category at the prestigious newsawards 2016.

It will be up against the Chichester Observer, Retford Times, The Cumberland News, The Essex Chronicle, The Oxford Times and The Scarborough News at the awards ceremony on April 27 at the London Lancaster Hotel, Hyde Park.

The Newbury Weekly News has also been shortlisted in the regional newspaper of the year category at the same awards for the third year in a row.

The Newbury Weekly News won the print innovation of the year category at the 2015 newsawards.
