  1. Where can I get a weekly edition of the Warrington Worldwide. It contains more interest and local news than the Guardian but I can only read sections of it on Facebook.
    And why make it free, I for one would not mind paying for it

    • There is monthly print edition of Warrington Worldwide but it does not contain everything that appears online. There is no weekly edition but there is a daily edition online and if you go to the “News” page you will get all the week’s news – and indeed ALL the news going back indefinitely if you want it. This a better way of getting the local news and sport than using social media. Hope this helps.
