A regional daily office is set to close with journalists moving to the headquarters of its sister title almost 10 miles away.
The Citizen, Gloucester, will shut its current base at The Oxebode on Friday after the newspaper comes to the end of its lease on the site.
Staff will now be based at the offices of the Gloucestershire Echo, in Cheltenham, and Citizen readers are being advised to contact the newspaper at the Echo’s St James’ Square address.
The Citizen had been based at The Oxebode, pictured above, since 2007, when it moved there from its previous St John’s Lane home.
The Echo’s office sits 9.1 miles away from Gloucester city centre, a journey which takes around 22 minutes by car.
The move was revealed in an story posted on the Citizen’s website on Saturday.
It reads: “The Gloucester Citizen will be closing its office in the Oxebode on Friday 4 March due to the end of our lease.
“All of our staff will continue to work in Gloucester but will report into and have a base at our head office in Cheltenham.”
Added Jenny: “We remain as committed as ever to this city and while our staff may report into our offices in Cheltenham, our reporters and newspaper sales staff will continue to be out and about in Gloucester, the Forest of Dean and Stroud daily ensuring we are capturing all of the latest news.”
