Walton Torch: Notice of closure

The Walton Torch has been discontinued. The decision to cease publication of the newspaper was made in March, after being suspended during lockdown. The website will now cease to be updated.


All is not lost, however! Since it was made known the Walton Torch newspaper would no longer trade, Walton's The Opening Doors Project has decided to launch its own community newspaper, with the first edition due out at the end of May 2021.


This is a welcome initiative of a great local charity which is working hard to improve lives in the community in many different ways.


Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged the work of Walton Torch - it has been much appreciated. Please now also give your support to the new publication.
