Help us to make The Southern an even better read

IT HAS now been six months since The Southern Reporter took the massive step and changed its format from broadsheet to compact.

It was a big change and it was not something we took lightly.

But it was a move we were confident about taking, because we believed you were behind us. And so it has proved.

Because we had sought your opinion on the changes we planned to make, we were able to give you the paper you wanted.

And following the change, many of you took the time to get in touch with us to tell us what you thought.

Most of you loved the new compact format, and all the extra news we were able to include.

And those changes you were less happy with we are trying to address.#

To enable us do that, we would like your help. We are currently in the process of setting up reader panels across the region to help gain reader feedback.

We need at least 100 people signed up to The Southern Reporter’s online survey group to ensure we get a wide spread of opinion as possible.

If this is something you think you would like to get involved with, visit to register, and you could win £25 of shopping vouchers for every survey you complete.
