Norfolk blogger supports Archant journalists facing job cuts

Food blogger and pie maker Brays Cottage Pork Pies has voiced support for Archant journalists facing job cuts, hosting a guest post from a former reporter.

Blogger “Sarah” describes local newspapers as “part of the warp and weft of a community ” and states Norfolk has some of the best in the Eastern Daily Press (EDP) and The Norwich Evening News.

She goes on to urge people to email Archant expressing their concerns about job losses.

The anonymous reporter highlights campaigns championed by Archant publications and the role of local newspapers within the community, in their contribution.

If public bodies are making cuts (aren’t they all?) who’s going to tell you about it and who’s going to give you a voice to shout about it?

Who’s going to tell you about crime, both major and minor, on your doorstep? Who’s going to tell you about events in your neighbourhood?

Who’s going to highlight the ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help charities and the community? Who’s going to tell you the quirky little stories that make you smile over your cornflakes?

    As posted on the blog: I’ve been a reporter, sub and page designer, both staff and freelance, for 40 years, and once worked on the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Evening star, sister papers to the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News. Both great papers – then.
    Now they’re not. Better than average, maybe, but not great. There are no ‘great’ regional dailies – or weeklies – left. But there’s still great journalism – this blog, for instance – out there for anyone with an iPad.
