The Free Press amidst the Coronavirus crisis

SORRY that there's no Stranraer & Wigtownshire Free Press to buy in the shops today. The Coronavirus crisis has made production and distribution of your favourite local paper exceptionally difficult and we have had to temporarily close our shop in St Andrew Street, Stranraer , our main outlet, as part of a responsible response to this dangerous bug. This is not all just about us. We appreciate this is a hugely difficult time for everyone. Across Wigtownshire, people are dealing with serious illness among family and friends. Some, heartbreakingly, have suffered bereavement. People are worried about their businesses and their jobs; their children's education. Amidst the greatest crisis to afflict the country since the war and the greatest economic shock in perhaps 300 years, times are tough. Yet we believe better days, be they ever so far away, are ahead. With that in mind, we are working hard behind the scenes to try to get your Free Press back into print as soon as possible. Thank you for all the messages of support and we look forward to continuing to try to inform you about what is going on via social media and to the return of the Stranraer & Wigtownshire Free Press, the authentic voice of the county. Meanwhile, we hope you all stay safe and well.
