YOUR award-winning Chronicle is re-launching next week in a smaller, more convenient, compact size.
The pages will be smaller but the content just gets bigger.
There will be more news of our readers' successes and achievements, more community news, more grassroots sport, more campaigns, more bargains
The transformation is perhaps the most important change in the newspaper's 230-year history.
Many improvements are planned to inform and delight our readers - while the Chronicle remains committed to the traditions of our famous old broadsheet, which has been named UK Weekly Newspaper of the Year four times in the past 12 years.
The compact will feature:
The Guide - the region's most comprehensive what's on and entertainment supplement.
Celebrations - pages of news chronicling the achievements of our readers and pictures of them having fun.
Community News - news and a close-up view of what makes our villages and districts tick.
Nostalgia - remember when a look at life in the past 50 years.
Chronicle Classified - Want to get a new job, hire a removal van or find a plumber? We've made it simpler to read and added hundreds of bargains.
Chronicle Motoring - Armchair motoring makes it fun to find that bargain new or used vehicle.
Chronicle Property - Lottery winner or first-time buyer, there's a home for you.
The changes have been led by our readers - hundreds have been involved in shaping the new content and look of the Chronicle.
Editor-in-chief Eric Langton, said: 'The first thing just about everyone asked for was a smaller size. Readers spoke and we listened.
'We have continued to work with readers to produce a compact newspaper which the Chronicle staff are proud to produce.'
An important part of the new Chronicle is to involve readers even more. We are recruiting village and district correspondents to help us keep in touch with every aspect of community life.
Readers are invited to attend our main weekly news conferences to help decide which issues are important to them.
Mr Langton said: 'We want to involve readers, after all it is their newspaper. We want them to send us their news and views, e-mail their digital camera pictures of events, tell us when we get it wrong, help us to get it right.
'The new size will no doubt feel a little strange at first. But we believe the success of the smaller Independent and Times shows that standards can be maintained while offering readers convenience.
'Hundreds of readers involved in scrutinising our plans like what they have seen. I believe that enthusiasm will be shared by all our readers next Friday.'
