The Wisbech Standard
is a weekly, mostly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to households in Wisbech and surrounding towns and villages in the northern part of the Isle of Ely
in Cambridgeshire, with some spillover into neighbouring parts of Lincolnshire and Norfolk.
It was founded in 1888 by the Sharman family and was owned by them, along with a number of other titles, until it was taken over in the 1980s by Eastern Counties Newspapers, now Archant. It’s published by their Archant Herts & Cambs division from editorial offices in March which are shared with Archant’s title for the western Fens, the Cambs Times.
Although it’s mostly a freesheet delivered to homes, about 15 per cent of each issue is sold through the news trade.
It comes out on Fridays. A free e-edition’s also available on the website.
