THE Observer offices on Blackburn Road, Accrington, will close next Friday (15 May).
And although we aim to produce a newspaper of equal quality from our new base in Manchester, the move still represents the end of an era.
To mark that fact, editor Mervyn Kay and his staff will be hosting a party that night at the Stanley pub in Stanley Street, Accrington, from 7pm.
All former employees, news contacts and advertisers would be very welcome to join us for a drink.
We regret that we can no longer take orders for photographs from our existing offices. Details of new arrangements will be announced shortly.LINK: We're moving - but it's business as usual
