The Diss Mercury
is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Diss in south-eastern Norfolk and nearby towns and villages
, including Harleston and Long Stratton as well as Eye just across the county boundary in Suffolk.
It’s published by Archant Norfolk, a branch of the Norwich-based Archant media group’s Archant Anglia division. The editorial offices are in Diss.
It was founded in 1984 as a replacement for the old South Norfolk News, at the same time that its sister title the Wymondham and Attleborough Mercury was founded from the Wymondham section of the old Norwich Mercury.
A sub-edition for Harleston was launched in 2012.
Although it’s a freesheet, a tiny fraction of the print run (fewer than a hundred copies) is sold through the news trade.
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s available on the website by free subscription.
