The Messenger is getting bigger – and better.

This year readers will have already noticed changes in the Messenger – from our new look to an improved mix of news and features.

Now we’re bringing you even more – and we’re also expanding the number of places where you can pick up a copy of the paper.

From September your weekly Messenger will include even more local Trafford news plus a brilliant eight-page puzzles pullout.

And you will be able to buy a copy from even more local outlets. Below is a full list of the places you can get your new improved Messenger.

Messenger Newspapers:

Editor Steve Thompson said: “The Messenger is a newspaper close to my heart. I live in Trafford and know what a great place it is.

“We have invested this year in more journalists to help cover the patch and we hope readers like the improvements we have made to the paper.”
