The end of an era as your Herald closes its office in Milngavie

IT’S all change at the Milngavie and Bearsden Herald, as after many years we are on the move.

While our office re-location to Kirkintilloch is the end of an era, modern technology means it’s also the start of something bold and new for our newspaper and website.

From Thursday, April 25, our editorial team will be based at 11 Dalrymple Court, Kirkintilloch, alongside our sister newspapers – The Kirkintilloch Herald, Bishopbriggs Herald and Springburn Herald.

Day-to-day the Milngavie and Bearsden Herald team will still be out and about in our patch and our community reporter Laura Sturrock will be based three days a week at Milngavie Library.

Laura and her colleagues chief reporter/deputy editor Graham Martin and reporter Julian Hearne will bring you all the latest news and sport from around the area. While modern technology is changing the way we produce newspapers, we are turning the clock back when it comes to getting the stories you want to read.

This new phase for the Herald will see our reporters out in the community more than ever to meet groups and residents.

Ad rep Maxine Conlon is a well-known and familiar face to our advertisers and will continue to make her regular visits and calls to businesses throughout or circulation area and beyond.

Milngavie and Bearsden Herald Editor Jim Holland said: ‘‘We are all committed to making this move work for the community. It’s never easy when you are a few miles away, but we’re at the end of the phone, at the end of an e-mail and will be out and about in the area as often as possible.”
