Extra day to meet The News in town

The Belper News is expanding its reporter surgeries at the Strutts Community Centre on Derby Road.

Reporter Andrew Wakefield will now be based at the venue between 10am and 12pm on Tuesdays in addition to our regular Wednesday slot, which takes place between the same times.

Editor Julie Crouch said: “The surgeries are proving to be an invaluable way of engaging with local people.

“We want to build on that and give people a further chance to come along and share their stories and opinions with us.”
