The Newbury Weekly News occupies a unique position in the community of West Berkshire, where it has been the dominant local newspaper for 145 years. Unlike the majority of provincial titles founded in the second half of the nineteenth century, the Newbury Weekly News has remained family owned, independent and successful. In the first editorial in 1867 the founding editor, T. W. Turner proclaimed that: “It will be our endeavour to refrain from advocating the views of any party or sect, but rather give an opportunity for all sides to be heard, without ourselves being committed to any.”


Each week, the Newbury Weekly News features hundreds of articles generated over an area of nearly 300 square miles with a population of around 150,000. Local authority decisions, court and crime reports, industrial and commercial news, sport, school activities, village news, traffic incidents, arts reviews, society meetings, … the subjects are legion. The stories are gathered by a newsroom staff of 25, supported by a network of loyal village correspondents upon which the paper has depended for rural news since its inception.
