The New Year is in its infancy, but one of the ‘Tiser’s resolutions is to continue to bring you the very best in local news, features and sport — in whatever format best suits you.
It goes without saying that the paper has a crucial role to play in the community in campaigning for things close to your heart, highlighting major issues that affect locals and throwing the spotlight on success stories and those people who go the extra mile.
But not only are we doing that in print, we also give you the option of our top-notch website, which can also be accessed in a special format on your mobile phone.
All of our services go hand in hand.
Online at www.ilkestonadvertiser.co.uk you will find all the breaking news, sport, competitions and everything else you would expect from your local paper, all at your fingertips.
The Advertiser is also producing more videos for its website than ever before and there is the chance to comment on most of the articles that appear.
This also works with our Facebook page and our Twitter feed where some of the messages you post will be in the running to feature in the paper.
When you log on via your mobile at m.ilkestonadvertiser.co.uk, just like a hard copy of the ‘Tiser you can read about local news anywhere you go.
Another crucial move by the paper is to give you a fresh platform from which to voice your opinions.
We already have a letters page and the Neighbourhood News section, but we also have the option of our Guest Viewpoint weekly slot.
We also want you to make sure your events don’t miss out on deserved publicity, so it is crucial you get in touch with our team (see page 2) so we can help out.
You can also send details and photos to us at news@ilkeston advertiser.co.uk for inclusion.
