I LIVE in Bare on the edge of Morecambe. I was drawn to purchase a Craven Herald & Pioneer (April 4) purely on the strength of its front page title and the type used.

What a pleasant surprise I had on actually reading it. The paper is stacked with local news stories shining a light on places with an obvious sense of community still. Loads of factual and informative input on a wide range of subjects. TV Guide, 8 page puzzle pull-out, splendid. You have a new customer.

I'm looking forward to watching a bit of club cricket this summer in your area. That's a pleasant way of exploring pastures new. Good luck with the weather to all clubs.
