The Camborne & Redruth Packet
is a mostly freesheet weekly tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the mid-Cornwall conurbation of Camborne, Redruth and Pool
, in the former Kerrier District of Cornwall.
It’s published by Newsquest (South West) and is one of a series of five Packet newspapers of which the Falmouth & Penryn Packet is the lead title; the Camborne and Redruth edition was established in 1955. All five share a common website and have their own local pages; the editorial offices are in Falmouth.
Although it’s primarily a freesheet, a small number of copies are sold through the news trade.
It comes out on Wednesdays.
