WHEN your weekly Comet dropped onto your doormat last week, you may have noticed something different.

Your favourite local newspaper has had a makeover, and reaction so far suggests it’s gone down well.

Our town centre managers enjoyed a good peek, and we’ve also had readers tweeting in their comments and pictures.

The new design is a cleaner, fresher look but still contains all the news in Comet country that matters to our readers most.

You can pick up your new look Comet, out every Thursday, from a variety of outlets in Herts and Beds. For a full list, visit ow.ly/9tFLB

You can also follow The Comet on Twitter, @thecomet24

  • I totally agree with you. The Advertiser is the only local paper I read now as its the only paper I receive. As far as im concerned and im sure I speak for many other people in the community the Comet doesnt exist anymore!!!

  • I am an old disabled man and think the Comet have discriminated against the elderly and disabled. I cant get out anymore these days and I havent had a Comet delivered for years. However I am sure cutting costs on your distribution is more important than the general public or any of your more fortunate readers who are able to get out and pick one up !

  • Can't say I noticed, and as it went straight under the cats' saucers as usual, I can't say they noticed either.

  • Why doesn't the Comet get delivered any more, we haven't received a copy for a very long time. Yet you say we can pick them up from a variety of outlets, why should we pay for something that is supposed to be delivered free?

  • As an expat living in Oz I look forward to reading the online version every Thursday, looks much clearer and less cluttered, thank you for making my weekly browse even more enjoyable. :0)

  • Yep, like most others I haven't recieved the Comet through my letterbox for years and the online version hardly ever works so a complete waste of a makeover!

  • I never get the Comet but always receive the Advertiser. I think you need to address your deliveries before wasting time on your 'New Look'
