A weekly newspaper in the South East has this week reduced in size from broadsheet to tabloid.
The Wokingham Times, a Surrey & Berkshire Media title ultimately owned by Trinity Mirror, made the transition on Wednesday.
The newspaper says the change is aimed at giving readers a better and easier to read format using a simple but modern and clean design.
A report in this week’s edition states that readers will “find it easier to pick up now it’s compact-sized – and harder to put down because it’s simply packed with fantastic news and features.”
It reads: “The Wokingham Times has always been at the heart of the community which means it understands the issues in the town.
“Our Crowthorne editon, too, is right at the pulse of Crowthorne life.
“So we haven’t radically altered your paper – we’ve simply given you better and an easier-to-read format with a simple but modern and clean design.
“So, as the old saying goes, that’s what’s in it for you… simply all you need if you care about the area.”
Readers are being asked what they think of the new look paper.
