The Moorlander now has a sister newspaper, The Cranbrook News which we launched last week, it will cover the new and fast-growing community of Cranbrook, east of Exeter.
The launch of The Cranbrook News made the ITV local news and a five minute slot on BBC Radio Devon as well as the newspaper trade papers and websites.
Sir Hugo Swire the MP for East Devon arrived as we set out our stall in the town and said: “This is a beautiful looking paper, well done.” Before getting his PA to take some photographs so he could put them on his website and twitter feed.
Sir Hugo will be writing a piece or two for The Cranbrook News in the future. Now we are running two newspapers our aim is to keep up the standards we have set ourselves.
Both The Moorlander and the new Cranbrook News will continue bringing you news, features and sport, but we will also carry on campaigning for things that matter to both communities.
