On 11 February I was informed that a decision at a senior level at Johnston Press means that  they will no longer require paid town correspondents for their local newspapers. This means that with immediate effect  I am no longer working for The Lancaster Guardian and so will no longer be forwarding information from local societies and organisations about events in the Settle area. I am sorry for any difficulties or disruptions which this might create but I was given no warning of this change in policy. They are however still prepared to carry local news but their new policy means that if  you wish them to carry information about your events then you will need to contact them direct with a press release about the event or alternatively you can pay for an advert in their paper. Please note however, this does not affect my work for THE CRAVEN HERALD, which will continue as normal as THE CRAVEN HERALD is owned by an entirely different company. I therefore look forward to hearing from you with all your news for THE CRAVEN HERALD as normal. Thanks – Gill O’Donnell
