Dear reader,

We might be in lockdown, but it is still Friday – and that means it is time to celebrate (and pick up the latest copy of Bucks Free Press, of course).

With many people isolating at home, I’m writing to you to explain all the great things on offer in your weekly newspaper.

As we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you during this pandemic, we hope you will continue to support local journalism by buying a paper on your weekly shop, or daily walk.

And please don’t forget the elderly relatives or neighbours who may not be able to get out but rely on the service we provide to find out essential advice and information – plus everything that’s going on in their community.

As always, we are #ThereWithYou
