HERE at the South Yorkshire Times we are busy gearing up for our relaunch on March 14 which will be one of the most exciting developments in our history.

We have asked you what you think because we want to build what you want into the new look paper.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our many readers who have been in touch with their thoughts about what they would like to see.

We are listening and we have already set up new sections in the paper for you to enjoy. Here are some of the things you have told us you want to see more of and that we will deliver .

MORE NEWS: We have had a lot of feedback about how interested you are in the news from your area. So the number of stories in your Times will be increased.

LIFESTYLE: And as well as news you would like to see more features about life in the Dearne, holidays, cars, fashion and property. We’ve packed more of this into your new look Times.

MORE SPORT: We’ve built in a new-look angling page, plus a sports columnist and racing coverage - plus watch this space for more junior football.

COURT LISTINGS: There’s always a lot going on in the Dearne - and you’ve told us you’d like to see more news from the courts. So we will be including more coverage of crime.

And remember there’s a way to buy your freshly-designed paper, with all this great content for a bargain price.

We are listening - we want to know what you would like to see in your local paper as we make changes.

We’re bringing in a smart new design, so that your newspaper is packed full of local features, sport, and special offers as well as motoring deals, new homes and jobs.

The price of your newspaper went up last year and there will be another increase in 2013 . Like so many businesses in today’s economy, we face a battle against growing costs, but at 45p - less than the price of a pint of milk or a loaf of bread - we believe that your newspaper represents fantastic value for money.

Graeme Huston, South Yorkshire Newspapers’ editor in chief, said: “We will never forget that our job is to serve the community we have been part of for so long. Times change and we must change with them, but our commitment to you and your news remains stronger than ever.

“The price of the paper has risen but we believe it is still great value. We promise we will always continue to report the issues that matter to you, challenging local authorities and campaigning on your behalf.”
