Standard Editor James Mitchison was delighted with the results.

“We are extremely proud of these latest ABC sales figures,” he said.

“It truly reflects the quality of journalism, not to mention the hard work and dedication relentlessly shown by our teams in editorial and advertising.”

He continued: “I would like to thank the team at The Gainsborough Standard for all of their efforts and congratulate them on this impressive result, but of course this wouldn’t have been possible without our readers. I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our readers for not only supporting the paper, but also engaging with us online, telling us your stories and sending us your letters.”

He added: “We’re here to serve the local community, so this means a lot.”
