When COVID-19 struck, it was a difficult time for everyone, and it also resulted in us making some difficult decisions.

We had to take the unfortunate decision to stop distribution of the Bowthorpe News to households, meaning we would only publish online.  As such, we launched a temporary website providing access to the most recent online edition only – this was done to ensure the server could cope with the additional influx of traffic.

With lockdown measures slowly being eased, we are beginning to deliver to households as normal again, and we’ve also seen our website traffic returning to normal. As such we’ve begun reactivating parts of our website.

We will continue to monitor the situation to ensure our resources are available as much as possible.  Thank you for your patience & support during this difficult period.
