Archant's Cambridge First says its last goodbye

After nearly two years, Archant's CambridgeFirst weekly newspaper has published its last edition.

Editor Rose Taylor, writing in today's paper, praises the work of her team of journalists but says: "The sad fact is that, in the end, we didn't manage to win the commercial market share we needed to fuel and sustain the good work. So it has to be goodbye.

"We leave Cambridge sad to go, but privileged to have been part of this beautiful city, filled with great institutions and equally great people."

At launch, Archant said CambridgeFirst would "point the way towards the future for local newspapers with its multi-platform and multiple routes to market approach" but the newcomer faced intense competition from rivals.
