Western Telegraph on the move after more than 40 years

First published in News

We are leaving our long-established base at Merlins Bridge for new premises on the outskirts of Haverfordwest.

The Western Telegraph moved from Bridge Street to its purpose-built Merlins Bridge offices in 1970, but today's paper will be the final edition to be produced from the site.

Tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday the final stages of the move to Western Tangiers, near Haverfordwest Airport on the A40, will be completed.

This means that the Western Telegraph, Milford Mercury, Pembrokeshire Farmer, Wales Farmer and Pembrokeshire County Living publications will all have a new base.

Importantly, all telephone numbers will remain the same but while the move takes place there may be some temporary difficulty in contacting both the advertising and editorial teams.

It may be best to email any queries so that staff can pick up their messages once the departments are up and running in the new premises.

It is anticipated that both departments will be working in the new office from Monday (November 5th).

Western Telegraph news editor Lee Day, said: "The Merlins Bridge site has served us very well but the time is right for us to move to new offices.

"Inevitably there will be a little disruption while the move takes place and I would ask people to have patience as it may take a little while longer than normal for us to return messages etc."

Anyone at the Western Telegraph can be contacted by emailing the recipient's firstname.secondname@westerntelegraph.co.uk.

The Merlins Bridge premises are now owned by well-known charity Pembrokeshire Frame.

From Monday our new address will be: Western Telegraph, Western Tangiers, Fishguard Road, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, SA62 4BU.
