OUR editorial and advertising office in Holton Road, Barry, will be closing but both the Penarth Times and the Barry & District News will still be publishing every week as usual, in print and online.

The service we provide our readers and advertisers will not be affected by the move.

Our reporters will continue to be out and about in the area, and will still be available for you to contact with your news and sports reports.

Our advertising department will now be operating from Newport.
