Importance of independent journalism will be focus of this year's Local Newspaper Week

Local Newspaper Week 2010 will take place from 10-16 May this year with the theme ‘Your Voice’, focusing on the importance of independent local journalism holding public bodies to account.
The theme reflects the Newspaper Society's campaign that independent coverage is under threat from council owned newspapers taking ad revenues away from the local press. Editors are being encouraged to provide examples of the hard-hitting investigative journalism, coverage of courts, councils and other public bodies, and influential campaigning work which their papers have undertaken.
