The new-style Pocklington Post has received some extremely positive feedback since it hit the shops yesterday.

This week’s paper contains a new range of features and news contributions from our readers, and the early signs are that readers are impressed by the changes to the paper.

Pocklington town clerk Richard Wood said: “I think your new style newspaper is a great improvement – well done for your efforts.”

Post reader Michael Held commented: “Congratulation to you and all your new editors for bringing the Pocklington Post up to date. it is a great improvement.

“My wife and I think there is so many new things to read it is a mind full of information. once again thank you all you new editors.”

Manager of The Carpenters Arms, Amie Morris, has welcomed the launch of the ‘Pub of the Year’ competition.

She said: “It’s nice for a local paper to do something for the pubs in the local areas as I don’t think we get recognition for all the hard work and effort we put into the job.

“A lot of people don’t realise that just because the pub is closed it doesn’t mean we aren’t working as there is a lot of paperwork, ordering, planning and looking after the beer involved.”
