Christmas Deadlines and Opening Hours 2020
The end of the year is almost upon us and what a year it's been! Everyone here at the funeral notices team is definitely ready for a break at Christmas and we hope you get the chance for some time out too.
Christmas falls on a Friday this year so for our daily publications this means no changes to deadlines up to and including Christmas Eve. We are not publishing any papers on Christmas Day as usual. The deadline for notices to be published on Boxing Day, Sunday 27th December (if your local paper is published on a Sunday), Monday 28th December and Tuesday 29th December is 12:30pm on Thursday 24th December.
Deadlines for daily papers are then as normal up to New Years Eve. The deadline for notices to be published on New Years Day, Saturday 2nd January 2021, Sunday 3rd January and Monday 4th January is 12:30pm on Thursday 31st December 2020. Deadlines will then return to normal (with the exception of the Paisley Daily Express where the deadline for the 5th and 6th January is 17:00 on Wednesday 30th December).
