Chief reporter Stuart Anderson introduces the North Norfolk News' new Your Money Matters campaign. 

Record prices at the fuel pumps. Supermarket shopping budgets buying less than just a few a months ago. 

And on top of that, energy bills are going up due to the energy cap rise, while pay-packets will be pinched by increased National Insurance contributions starting in April.

People across north Norfolk are being asked to shell out more for virtually everything.

To address what could be most difficult year in a long time for many families, the North Norfolk News is today launching a new campaign.

We want to do whatever we can to help our readers through the growing demands on the cost of living.
