Today marks a new era at the Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald and we are delighted to bring you our new look papers.
As well as bringing you in-depth coverage of what is happening locally, from planning issues, education matters, Angus Council issues and reports from our local community councils and sports clubs, we are building on our strong foundations by providing a bigger and better paper.
Our reporters are well-known in the Forfar and Kirriemuir areas. We have listened to your comments and are delighted to bring you a bigger sports section and a weekly eight page entertainment section in The Guide.
The reporters are Janet Thomson, Sarah McLean and Hannah Messer. They work closely with the advertising department headed by group sales manager Linda Ruxton. The sales team comprises media sales consultants Jacquie Boyd, Paul Bulle and Chris Corrigan and media sales advisors Susan Collier, Danny Sturrock and Nicola Forbes. Also based in Forfar are administrator Karen Roy and advertising administrator Trudy Lindsay. Our merchandiser Ian McLeod provides a vital link with our local newsagents.
