The man in charge of the editorial department of the Bridgwater Mercury is set to hold a Meet the Editor session.

Tim Lethaby has been editor of the newspaper and website of the Bridgwater Mercury since December, and he is asking readers new and old to come and chat with him about coverage.

Being held on Thursday July 28 from 10.45am to 11.15am, the Meet the Editor session will take place at Cafe Karma, in Bridgwater High Street.

Tim said: "I have loved my first seven months as editor of the Mercury, and I feel I am now in a position to model the paper and website on the type of positive, community news I champion.

"But this is your newspaper and website, the people of Bridgwater and the surrounding villages, and I want to know what is important to you.

"Please pop down to Cafe Karma for a coffee and a chat, to let me know what you like most about our news, what you would like more of, or just let me know about a story you would like us to cover."
