A new and fresh look to the Hastings Observer website

WELCOME to the new-look Hastings Observer, which now has a fresh look for its great mix of local news, sport and information.

If you’re accessing the desktop version, you will notice a fresh new design. There is also a new navigation approach to help you find your way around the website.

And there’s more - a new ‘What’s On’ section, a ‘Picks of The Day’ slot on every article as well as the homepage, and an improved player for all the latest videos.

In addition, Tweets, offers and services are more prominently displayed, so too is the contact information if you want to get in touch with the Hastings Observer team, whether editorial, advertising or newspaper sales.

The changes have been made in response to customer feedback about the previous version of the website.

If you’ve been one of the many people who have been involved in our research programme, thank you for sharing your views – it’s been a great help.

Existing registered users should also still be able to use their current login for commenting on the site.

There will be further enhancements to the digital experience for users of www.hastingsobserver.co.uk - across web and mobile - in the coming months.

But all your favourite content will still be available, and hopefully easier to access as a result of the changes we’ve made.

Editor Keith Ridley said: “I’m delighted to be able to offer this significantly improved experience for our desktop website users.

“I really believe our new-look site will help our audience to find and enjoy our great online content and services.

“But to make sure we’re doing the best possible job we can, I’m keen for as much feedback as possible.

“So please do let me know what you think by commenting online or emailing me at keith.ridley@jpress.co.uk”
