For a year, the Brighton and Hove Independent – known locally as the Brighton Indy – was suspended due to the pandemic and the lockdown.
Now, after two weeks of free sampling, it returns weekly as 72 pages as The Brighton Indy.
Covering news from across the city, including Hove and Portslade, the new-look newspaper is contemporary, honest and with a genuine passion for the communities of Brighton and Hove.
It is full of news, columns, nostalgia, news and much more. It features a weekly supplement on Brighton and Hove Albion, packed with fantastic analysis, the latest transfer news, interviews, a flashback and brilliant columnists. There is also a new Lifestyle and Culture section with mindfulness, fitness and food among the topics covered.
Each week, readers will have eight pages of puzzles along with an overview of the latest properties on the market, business news and a roundup of what is happening in politics across the city.
Editor-in-Chief Nicola Caines said: “It has been an extremely busy few weeks to get the Brighton Indy up and running, but the feedback we have had so far has been worth it.
“This week is our first paid edition and we really hope people buy a copy and enjoy it. It is packed with local news, lots of shows, the latest information from Brighton Racecourse and lots of positive articles that you are proud to live in the city.
“We also have our fantastic Brighton and Hove Albion jigsaw puzzles and puzzles and on top of that this week we have a Euro 2020 supplement with a free wall chart. Plus there are lots of competitions and offers.
“The team and I have worked really hard on paper and we would love for people to go out and buy a copy!”
