The News Guardian is moving towards a new era in news gathering this week.
As from Thursday evening the editorial department will be moved to the office of the title’s sister paper, the News Post Leader, in Morpeth.
But while the closure of the Park View, Whitley Bay, site brings to an end the presence of an office in North Tyneside which goes back more than 100 years, the move does herald a new era in the working practice of our journalists.
Over the coming months reporters and photographers will be looking to work remotely from communities in North Tyneside for the News Guardian and south east Northumberland for the News Post Leader.
This will gradually remove the need for staff to be office-based.
In the meantime, all members of staff would like to thank our loyal readers and advertisers who have supported us and supplied us with excellent community news, sport, features and photographs.
We look forward to this vital relationship continuing for many more years to come.
Our contact details will be changing with the move.
As from Friday our postal address will be 17 Newgate Street, Morpeth, Northumberland NE61 1AW.
The new telephone number for editorial is (01670) 517171 and for advertising (01670) 516066. Our email addresses will stay as they are.
