Look out for your new–look Falkirk Herald!

The countdown is on to the relaunch of your favourite local newspaper.

Over the past 18 months we have been carrying out extensive research into what our readers want and expect from their Falkirk Herald.

The culmination of that was an event in the Howgate shopping centre during the summer when dozens of you came along to offer your views on some of the design and content options we had come up with.

Since then we have been working to implement the desired changes – and we will be unveiling our new-look product on Thursday, November 10.

The biggest change you will notice from the start is the size of the paper.

A huge percentage of readers urged us to move away from our traditional broadsheet format to an easier to handle tabloid, favoured by the the majority of newspapers these days.

But the relaunch isn’t all about size – our 80-plus pages each week will be packed with the stories and photographs you want to see.

We will be introducing a range of new columns and articles, along with a 16-page magazine section including everything from restaurant reviews to property features, and nostalgia to entertainment.

It’s a paper you won’t want to miss!
