Archant launches free weekly newspaper, Norwich Extra

Archant has announced the launch of Norwich Extra – a free weekly paper for the city of Norwich, focused on helping residents decide where to go, what to buy and what to do that weekend.

Norwich Extra will keep readers updated on the latest community developments with news and inspiration on what to do in Norwich, including sections on shopping, home, gardening, eating out, entertainment and sport. It will also have consumer features helping readers find their way to the best offers in the city.

There will be regular editorial on key figures in the community about what makes the city tick. The sports section will have a guide to the local sporting weekend ahead and supporter analysis of that week’s developments at Norwich City FC. In the business section, there will be a double-page spread dedicated to profiling a local Norwich business with a story to tell.

David Powles has been appointed editor, alongside his role as editor of the Norwich Evening News.

The newspaper will be published every Thursday.
