A new free weekly newspaper for Norwich hit the streets today.

From this Thursday, the Evening News is launching the Norwich Extra across the city, replacing the Norwich Advertiser, which had its last edition last week.

Evening News editor David Powles said: 'Launching the Norwich Extra has allowed us to take a fresh look at the content readers would like to see in their weekly newspaper, bring in new commercial partners and improve the distribution model.

'Some 60,000 copies will go to homes and businesses in and around the city centre, reaching 90,000 people. It will also appear in health and fitness centres, coffee shops, cafes and hotels and be handed out at various locations.

'Closely aligned to the Norwich Evening News, editorially it will complement people's weekend, whether they live in the city or are just visitors.

'It will have a consumer-emphasis and include content on subjects such as shopping, lifestyle, eating out, entertainment, gardening, food and drink, cinema and fashion.

'It's tagline will be 'the paper that adds value' and every week it will include a page of money-off vouchers, as well as competitions.'
