Reporters on a Yorkshire weekly are using a cafe to meet members of the public about news stories after their offices were closed down.
However the Johnston Press-owned title has come up with an innovative way of maintaining a presence in the West Yorkshire town – by swapping office culture for cafe culture.
They are inviting members of the public to come and meet reporters at Cucina, a cafe bar specialising in modern European cuisine.
The move was outlined in a story published in the print edition of the Morley Observer and Advertiser for the past fortnight headlined “Drop in for a cuppa and tell us your news.”
“Every Wednesday anyone will now be able to call into Cucina on Queen Street between noon and 2pm and there will always be a reporter on hand to chat to,” it says.
Johnston Press declined to comment, but according to company statements on previous office closure stories, the company has recently undertaken a detailed review of all its local offices.
