Your new-look Frome Times goes full colour!

A BRIGHT new era begins this issue with your new-look Frome Times, printed in full colour for the first time.

After 19 years in black and white, your favourite  free fortnightly paper is now in full colour, bringing all your local news, photographs and adverts to life in glorious colour.

The Frome newspaper has been running since 1998 and has sister newspapers in Melksham (Melksham Independent News, published since 1981) and Westbury (White Horse News, published since 1992); all under the same family-owned company.

In August 2000, the company bought its own web offset printing press, which is based in Holt, near Bradford-on-Avon, where over 37,000 copies of all three papers have been printed at the premises every fortnight (13,900+ copies of Frome Times; 13,700+ copies of Melksham News and 10,000+ copies of White Horse News).

Owners of the company, Ian and Susan Drew, have decided now is the time to enter the world of colour and whilst their own printing press will cease production, they’re sure that local advertisers and their loyal readers will enjoy the new-look newspaper. The papers will now be printed by Mortons, one of the country’s leading newspaper printers on a state-of-the-art press.

“Your Frome Times will still be packed full of local news – news about Frome, its schools, clubs, organisations and people – but now with the added impact of colour!” said Ian Drew, owner/editor of Frome Times.

“We are really excited about the new-look paper. We hope it will help cement our place at the heart of the Frome community and give readers one more reason to enjoy their local newspaper.”
