WE need more copies each month – so our print run is going up this week.

Up until now, we have distributed 10,000 copies each month across Eastbourne, Hailsham and surrounding areas.

Today we have decided to add on an extra 2,000 so there will be 12,000 copies in August and going forward.

Bournefree publisher Andy Thomas said: “We can hardly keep up. The papers go every month and we always run out.

“So today we took the decision to go to 12,000, and I’m so excited about it.

“It sends out a very positive message to our advertisers, as well as to our readers and people who follow our social media.

“12,000 is a lot of papers but we want to aim higher still in the coming months.”
