IT’S out with the old and in with the new for the Pioneer in cyberspace.
This is the start of a new chapter in the history of the Ellesmere Port Pioneer online with the launch of a new-look website.
The site, which has the same address, www.ellesmereportpioneer.co.uk, is still the best place on the internet to get all the latest breaking news and sport from in and around Ellesmere Port.
There will be more videos and pictures, leisure and entertainment news, views and opinions.
While our modern design is the most obvious change there are plenty of other improvements to make the site interactive and easy to use.
New features include a ‘most popular stories’ panel on the homepage, allowing you to drive the news agenda.
You can also comment on key stories and air your views in improved forums.
Lists of related articles next to our news and sports stories help you find what you want quickly.
Pioneer editor Sue McCann said: “Since its launch earlier this year ellesmereportpioneer.co.uk has proved hugely popular with our readers at home and abroad, as well as anyone else who wants to keep in touch with what’s happening in Ellesmere Port.
“The old website served us well, but the internet continues to make rapid advances and we have to move with the times.
“We need to ensure that the service we provide online is as accessible, comprehensive and interactive as possible.”
As well as our outstanding news, sport and entertainment sections, new blogs have been created covering nostalgia, quirky news and environmental issues.
And don’t forget, you’ll be able to search for jobs, homes and cars, items to buy and sell and even your dream date.
