Slight changes to paper will help

I don’t think the BCT needs to change, but my comments are the following:

• Photos with articles are more interesting than plain text articles

• There have been many articles where I wish I’d been able to attend the event being reported on – perhaps more warnings or pre-publicity of events is required, not just the What’s On column.

I’m sure many events would be better supported if we only knew that they were on.

Perhaps it would create a sense of excitement in our town to be part of things, instead of just reading the interesting stories afterwards.

• The BCT has become a vessel for excessive advertising, but I realise this is how you make money.

A little note from me: I take the centre pile and put it in my recycling without looking at any of them.

Being unemployed, I can’t shop, so they’re of no interest to me.

I can’t speak for everyone as I know people who look for specials in them every week.

I’m glad that I can put the adverts aside, allowing me to hold the lighter paper and read comfortably.

I remember the old days when adverts were skimmed over to get to the juicy stuff – now I can get straight to the juicy stuff.

So, I repeat, I don’t think changes are needed.

I just wanted to voice my small opinion, as that could bring forth ideas for the future, in which case I’ve served a purpose.
