By Hayden Moore
CAN you not get out to the shops right now? As a result of the constantly changing environment caused by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, The Echo have adapted how we deliver the paper each week.
The operation of the newspaper going to print on Wednesday and being on shop shelves every Thursday has not changed, and we have added an additional service to ensure that you get your weekly fix of local news.
