In today's Herald . . .
Also this week, we profile all the people from our patch who were included on the Queen's New Year Honours List, another set of finalists in the Pride of Stratford Awards and four finalists up for the Herald-sponsored Senior Sports Personality of the Year in the Stratford-on-Avon District Sports Awards 2016.
We report on the jailing of a Stratford man who shared indecent images of children in an online chat room, the sudden death of a well-known artist and take a look inside the newly-refurbished Stratford Fire Station.
Our photographer joined revellers at Shakespeare's Street Party in Henley Street on Saturday when the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust kicked off a year of events commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of our Will. We also report on other events, including giving you the opportunity to walk in the town's most famous son's footsteps and the commemorative £2 coins that will go into circulation later this year.
There's the usual page of letters, two pages of arts and entertainment on which we look back on 2015's offerings on stage and screen in Stratford. And in our sports section we report on another match postponement for Stratford Town FC.
And as our new year gift to you, in this week's paper is your FREE January Focus magazine which is packed with tips on getting fit, what to do in the month ahead, a behind-the-scenes look at the refurbishment of the Swan Theatre, among many other features.
Back to the Herald, and we're offering all readers the chance to win a year's membership and a pamper day at Club Motivation in the Holiday Inn Stratford-upon-Avon.
All for a mere 65p...happy new year to you all !
