Lots of towns seem to be loosing theirs; often blamed on the BBC local news reports each day. I'm not sure that's really the case because it's so dire! At least NWN are trying.

Nonetheless, some successful local papers actually rely on readers letters to pull in the readers, as does a bit of punchy reporting. However, that might mean upsetting the status quo and Newbury is quite subservient.
