Regional press front pages toast return of patches’ pubs

The regional press has welcomed the reopening of pubs on its front pages today.

Several daily newspapers opted to splash on the relaxation of coronavirus lockdown measures, covering how the occasion was marked on their patches on Saturday.

Among them were Blackpool daily The Gazette, the Lancashire Post and Portsmouth daily The News.

The JPIMedia sister titles featured the logo of the company’s group-wide ‘Time To Support Local’ campaign on their front pages.
