As readers may be aware, as of the end of March 2014 Nene Valley News ceased to be published as a local authority funded newspaper.

A group of local business people have taken over the title and shall continue to keep the paper being published on a fortnightly basis. This has given the newspaper wider scope for editorial and advertising content.

Run of paper positions will still be included throughout the news pages.

We are keen to build on the very successful Service Directory which has appeared in the paper for many years. A wide range of new advertising features and classified headings will be included throughout the year, such as Births, Marriages and Deaths, Official Notices, Property and Motors.

We have a full in-house design team who can help you develop new copy or amend any existing artwork you may have at no extra cost. You will be sent a confirmation and proof of your advertisement for approval before we go to print.
