A NEW Star is born next week- with your favourite family newspaper getting a headline grabbing make-over, writes Graham Walker.

We’ve been listening to what you want with roadshows and reader group surveys.

Digital Editor Graham Walker spoke to dozens readers at our stand in Fargate. More are planned next week - see the column on the right.

You told us you love the place you live and that’s why The Star is important, to keep you informed.

Phil Davis, of Sheffield, said: “The Star is a great read. Full of local news and community campaigns.”

Sue Ried said: “It keeps everyone informed. We couldn’t do without it.”

Sheila Foster, 28, a mum of two, said: “We’re always looking for family things to do and The Star is full of ideas.”

Blades fan Sam Jenkins, 48, said: “The football coverage is great and both sides of the city get looked after - a good job, because my other half is a Wednesday fan.”

It’s great to be told you’re doing a good job, but we strive to continually improve.

That’s why the paper will be getting a new look on Tuesday, April 16. Our web site, here at, will also be changing next month.

We’ve employed some of the world’s top designers to give The Star a modern, vibrant and bright new look. Order your copy now.
