      The Herald Express - The Voice of Torbay

      This is a great local paper, it costs 37p and is published six days per week, Monday to Saturday. It covers a large area of South Devon, primarily Torbay but also Teignbridge and the South Hams.

      It carries all the topics you would expect in a local paper; stories from local schools, topical news e.g. the effects of the current economic situation, classified ads etc.

      There are regular features on certain days, on Tuesdays there is a section called "Bygones" which uses archive photographs and stories from all eras of the 20th century. Tuesdays also has a supplement on property rentals but property sales are on Fridays.

      If you have lived in Torbay for any time you will almost certainly see people you know on a regular basis which gives it a really nice community feel. It also offers work experience to local school pupils and it is a popular choice and there is normally strong competition for places.

      The Herald runs many competitions and offers and you can also access it online.

      Great paper, great stories

      THE EVENING HERALD

      This has to be one of the best local newspapers ever! It has always got really big stories on the frontpage and has you attention gripped! I think the paper is keeps you really informed and they have certain days designated to certain topics - for instance thursday is homeseeker day where all the houses for sale are. On wednesday it is job day - it really is good because you know exactly where you are.

      When travelling to other parts of the country - i have compared other local newspapers and some are dam right boring, but the Evening Herald is colourful, informative and you never get bored with what is written in there. I think the thing that stands out the msot about the paper is it can be read by all - and the stories are very consice. Overall this is a brilliant local paper and one that the editors should be really proud of, and at 34pence a paper this is well worth the money!
