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

Thurmaston Times

The Thurmaston Times is an independently produced community newspaper published every two months in tabloid format and distributed free in the villages of Thurmaston, Barkby and Syston on the north-eastern outskirts of Leicester.

It was founded in 1995. It’s edited by Mick and Lynn Westwood and printed by their company Thurmaston Print Shop Ltd, which is based in Thurmaston.

Although most of the distribution is direct to homes, a substantial share of the print run (nearly a third) is distributed through pickup points at shops, libraries and other public locations. A few back issues are also available as digital editions.
