A Final Note to You!
It means a great deal to us that you read our newsletter and our articles each week, so ‘thank you!’ and we hope you stick with us!
We launched Counter Cut this summer. Frankly, we were fed up of local papers dominated by click-bait and pop-up ads, and we knew that we weren’t alone - our growing subscriber base is testament to that!
But we rely on you, our readers, to help us spread the word so that we can continue to grow.
So, if you can help us by sharing an article or two on your social media, writing a piece for us or forwarding this email to someone who might enjoy it, we’d be incredibly grateful.

Have a great week!
