It was established in 1981 as the Wycombe Star, but assumed its present title in 1984. Local editions were launched in 1990 – including a revived Wycombe Star as well as a Chiltern Star and Thame & Chinnor Star. By 1997, all had been reabsorbed into the parent title, which was renamed The Star that year. It reverted to the South Bucks Star in October 1998.
It has no website of its own; its web presence is through the Bucks Free Press‘s website, on which it’s possible to read an e-edition of the Star online.
It’s published on Wednesdays.
