is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Bourne and nearby towns and villages in the District of South Kesteven in southern Lincolnshire
, on the western edge of the Fens.
It was launched as an independent newspaper in 1989 called the Bourne Local, but has grown to cover the nearby towns of Market Deeping and Deeping St James; it lost the word Bourne from the title in 1999. It was taken over by Johnston Press in 2005 and is now published by their East Midlands Newspapers subsidiary.
The editorial offices are in Stamford and are shared with the Stamford Mercury (of which The Local is now effectively an edition), but there’s a local office in Bourne‘s West Street, and it has its own website.
It comes out on Fridays.
