The cover prices of The Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald have increased by 5p as from this week’s edition.
We need to raise the price to meet overheads such as the rising costs of print, paper and transportation and, most importantly, continue to provide high quality local journalism.
Editor Brian Stormont said: “We want to ensure that The Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald continue to bring you the best possible coverage of all the local news and sports, opinion, details of what’s on and much more.
“We know a price rise is far from ideal but I hope that you don’t find it a prohibitive increase.
“The Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald still cost much less than a cup of coffee at most high street shops and for your money you are getting an average of 48 pages packed with local news and advertisements.”
