St Ives Town Crier (defunct)

The St Ives Town Crier was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for St Ives and the eastern part of Huntingdonshire (now a district within Cambridgeshire), including nearby Somersham and Fenstanton.

It was established in 1973 as the North Hunts Town Crier but was renamed the St Ives & Huntingdon Town Crier in 1986. After three years as the St Ives & Huntingdon edition of the Town Crier it reverted to the 1986 title. The separate St Ives Town Crier was launched in 1993.

It was published by Bletchley-based Premier Newspapers, a subsidiary of Johnston Press. The editorial offices were in St Neots.

It was part of a series of three Town Crier newspapers for Huntingdonshire; the other two were the Huntingdon Town Crier and the St Neots Town Crier.

It came out on Thursdays.

Upon Iliffe’s acquisition of the Town Crier series from Johnston Press in January 2009 it was merged with the Huntingdon Weekly News, the Huntingdon Town Crier and the St Ives Weekly News to form the Huntingdon & St Ives News & Crier. The series’s website was withdrawn.
