“ Local newspaper in Salisbury. „
The Salisbury Journal is Salisbury's weekly local newspaper, out every Thursday. For a local newspaper, it has everything, however, not a lot happens in Salisbury so the 'news' doesn't always make for the most exciting reading! I personally get the journal for the entertainment listings which have all of the local gigs/live music/art events- of which there are plenty! The journal also contains the Property Journal which is always more interesting than the main bulk of the paper with many nice properties in the area to look at. The classifieds section and business listings have local businesses and services as well as for sale/wanted ads and car trading. There is a journal kids club (of which I used to be a member!) and the best thing about this for children are the competitions (usually winning tickets to local attractions) and that you have your name published when it is your birthday! Much to our family and freind's amusement, when my brother joined, they made a mistake in his age so upto his 21st birthday (usually it is for under 11s) his birthday was published in the kids section of the Salisbury Journal!
The Journal which comes out every Thursday, is one of the oldest papers in the South West of England. It began its business in the seventeeth century, and there is still an old steam press on display in the front window of the offices. The paper is very informative with local news, announcements, classifieds, pictures from the past including photos from the 50's showing how much Salisbury has changed, and what has disapeared, from the court lists, job vacancies, Hob Knobs Diary, Leisure Time and many more. Sometimes when I've taken something into be advertised, it doesn't appear in the paper, and I'm left seaching for it. It costs about fourty pence for an addition. The offices are situated in Rollostone Street.
