THE Hunts Post has again been recognised for the quality of its editorial content.
The current Newspaper Society Free Weekly Newspaper of the Year was nominated for best free weekly newspaper at the Regional Press Awards 2006, at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, on Friday.
Chairman of the judges, Peter Sands, described the newspapers nominated as "exceptionals among the exceptions" when it came to providing a weekly service of original and apt news and features.
"Journalism is about origination, not about recycling second-hand ideas and words. It is about professional writing, digging for real stories about real people, getting things done for the communities we serve and being diligent and passionate. This is still alive in these newspapers," he commented.

Editor Andy Veale, who attended the event with deputy editor Angela Singer, senior reporter Ian Mackellar, photographer Helen Drake and publisher Paul Richardson, said: "We were delighted to be nominated for these awards, which really focus on the skills of journalists. The Hunts Post is acknowledged as one of the very best, not only in and around Huntingdonshire - which is a responsibility we take very seriously - but also in the regional newspaper industry.
