Pulman’s comes home

THIS week we welcome three new titles to the Pulman’s View stable - Crewkerne, Chard and Ilminster.

This sees a return to our South Somerset roots. Although born in Axminster, this newspaper’s founder - George Pulman - set up the Pulman’s Weekly News and Advertiser in Crewkerne in 1857. 

Before that, Mr Pulman was editor of the now defunct Yeovil Times - so it really does feel as if Pulman’s is “coming home”.

Until this week, we have been covering the news and views of Crewkerne, Chard and Ilminster through our series of popular Weekender titles. 

But we felt now was the time to bring South Somerset back into the Pulman’s fold, where we can offer a bigger and better newspaper every week.

Regular Weekender readers can rest assured all of their favourites parts of the paper can be found in Pulman’s View, along with new features and expanded property, local services and motoring sections.

Everything you’d expect to find in our arts and entertainment section Weekender Life - and a whole lot more - is in our View 2 leisure guide.

And, of course, Howard Larcombe’s comprehensive coverage of the local sport scene remains in place.

So make sure you look out for your Pulman’s View every Tuesday, across East Devon and South Somerset.
