A weekly newspaper has put its town centre offices up for sale for £185,000, joining sister titles in the area who are also moving bases.
The Bridlington Free Press has told readers it is moving out of its Prospect Street offices because they are “too big for our requirements”.
The Johnston Press title is now seeking a new base in the town and said its journalists will be based in the community more as the newspaper prepares to leave the old building.
Bridlington Free Press editor Nick Procter told HTFP: “The office is up for sale and we’re looking for other premises in Bridlington to provide a better environment for staff.”
A story in the Free Press said: “Your Bridlington Free Press team will now be out and about in the community more than ever as they prepare to say farewell to their old building in Prospect Street.
“The offices are too big for our requirements and the company is seeking a new, modern working environment in Bridlington.
“Our commercial team is now equipped with the latest technology to meet customers’ needs at locations and times convenient to them and our editorial team can update the news round-the-clock.”
The Free Press’ building is up for sale for £185,000 and is being marketed by Ullyotts.
The paper’s story adds: “The Bridlington Free Press will stay in Bridlington and continue its unique and unrivalled news and commercial service.
“Reception will stay open in Prospect Street as usual until the building is sold and our reporters will be based there on a rota basis.”
It also provides email addresses and mobile numbers for its reporters.
The Whitby Gazette put its offices up for sale for £395,000, while the News’ building is also on the market.
