All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Sleaford Standard

The Sleaford Standard is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the town of Sleaford in the Lincolnshire district of North Kesteven and the surrounding area as far as Boston to the east, Coningsby and Waddington to the north, the Nottinghamshire border to the west and beyond Grantham to the south.

It was founded in 1924. Its publisher, Peterborough-based East Midlands Newspapers, is a division of regional and local newspaper giant Johnston Press and also publishes the Grantham Journal and the Boston Standard for the neighbouring areas. The editorial offices are in Sleaford, although they moved from Handley Street to the nearby Sleaford Station Business Centre in 2013.

From time to time it’s appeared as a sub-edition of the Lincolnshire Standard, including two three-year spells from 1983-86 and 1989-92.

It comes out on Wednesdays.
