Sir,

A  brief comment concerning the price of my favourite local newspaper increasing to 90 pence per week.

Is this value for money? In old money, as many Courier readers will remember, it is a whopping 18 shillings.

In the January 5 issue there were 28 pages but only 12 gave any local news worthy of mention.

I am a great supporter of the local paper but surely rather than an increase in price a reduction would be more appropriate.

Is the paper value for money I will let Courier readers decide?
