Regional daily staff move to ‘more modern’ district office

Regional daily staff working out of a district office are set to move into a new base in the same town.

Journalists working for the Ipswich-based East Anglian Daily Times at its Bury St Edmunds office were due to move into their new home this week.

The lease on the EADT’s current Bury office, in Woolhall Street, is expiring, and HTFP understands it closed on Tuesday.

The new office is based at Ask House, a converted office block just north of the A14 trunk road through the town, which owners Archant believe will offer “more modern” facilities for staff, including more reliable internet connections.

A spokesman for the company said: “We’re moving to a more modern office for our staff.  It’s about our staff needs and we remain incredibly and firmly committed to our audience.

“We are committed to the Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk marketplace, and it’s a core area for us in which overall audience is growing in print and online.”

Archant also publishes free weekly the Bury St Edmunds Mercury in the Suffolk town.

Rival publisher Iliffe News and Media publishes paid-for weekly the Bury Free Press, which maintains an office in the town centre.
