A message from the Lancashire Post editor, Gillian Parkinson
For 134 years you have trusted the Lancashire Post to bring you independent, high-quality journalism about the issues which matter to you.
From the early days of print to now ensuring you have all today’s news, sport and information at your fingertips on your mobile phone, we have transformed our newsrooms and we will continue to adapt and evolve our service to meet your needs.
Our journalists have the very best contacts within our communities because they are part of the community.
And we are signed up to the Editor's Code as part of our membership of the Independent Press Standards Organisation so you can rest assured that every word is fair and accurate .
Our reputation depends on this and has done for 134 years. But quality journalism costs money and so today we are calling on the support of our loyal readers to sustain this by asking you to subscribe to the lep.co.uk website. Our new subscription is focused on helping you stay in the know and to have an enhanced and more enjoyable online experience. This means fewer advertisements and access to our newsletters.
It is through the financial support of our readers that we can continue to focus more on the news you want to read about and report more on the issues that matter to you. This financial support means we can continue reporting on the important events of the day; focusing on those issues which impact on your lives, investigating, holding powers to account and making sure your voices are heard.
With the rise of unregulated content and inaccurate reporting through social media it is more important than ever that our regulated and trusted voice remains at the heart of the community.
I have lived in Lancashire almost all of my life and am extremely proud of our county and its people. There is so much to love about Preston and the whole of Central Lancashire. We are lucky enough to have some of the most stunning countryside and coast, a rich history and a vibrant economic community.
In these difficult times, we want to make sure that we stand up for Lancashire and its people, so if you need us we will be there for you, as we have been throughout the pandemic.
As the editor of the Lancashire Post and lep.co.uk, it brings me great pride to provide you with the news and I ask you to join us as we embark on this latest development in our journey together.
Thank you for your support.
Gillian Parkinson, Editor
