The Packet has launched its new-look website, making local news even easier to access, and we are looking for your feedback.

The homepage of now features even more news at your fingertips, offering no less than 12 options of news stories, plus sport, entertainment and national news, all at a single glance.

Also new is the area’s shipping and port news on the homepage, making this favourite with readers even easier to find.

Going in deeper, by clicking the various pages on the toolbar, the website still features all the old favourites, including reports of churches and WIs, reader letters and a dedicated place to buy photographs featured on the pages of the newspapers – plus additional, unseen images.

There is also a whole page set aside to the Gannett Charity Grants, a grant award scheme offering between £5,000 and £10,000 to local charities through the Gannett Foundation (the charitable arm of Gannett Co Inc, the parent company of the Packet) which is open for bids at the moment.

Let us know what you think. Get in touch with Jonathan on 01326 213 328, email or send us a tweet @thepacket.
