Staff working on four weekly newspapers in the South East are set to move to a new office 20 miles away.
Journalists working on the Croydon Advertiser, Crawley News, East Grinstead Courier & Observer and Surrey Mirror will be relocated from Trinity Mirror’s Redhill office to the Guildford home of the Surrey Advertiser.
The move by publisher Trinity Mirror means the Courier & Observer will be based 38 miles from its East Grinstead patch, while the News and the Advertiser will be produced almost 30 miles from Crawley and 35 miles away from Croydon respectively.
The move affects more than 20 staff currently based in Redhill, where the Mirror was first published 138 years ago.
The Advertiser’s home at Stoke Mill is also currently home to titles including the Woking Advertiser, Aldershot News & Mail, Surrey & Hants Star Courier and Chronicle & Informer, which covers South-West London.
The county-wide news website Get Surrey is also based there.
Trinity Mirror has confirmed the move but declined to comment further. No jobs will be lost as part of the relocation.
It comes two days after it was revealed journalists at the TM-owned North Wales Daily Post learnt their Llandudno Junction office would be closing in a press release issued by supermarket chain Lidl.
The Post will move to a new home five miles away in Colwyn Bay in an as yet unspecified date.
