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

Alsager Chronicle

The Alsager Chronicle is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the “bathrooms and bullets” town of Alsager (home to the Royal Ordnance and Twyfords) and the surrounding villages in the unitary authority of Cheshire East, on its border with Staffordshire.

It’s published by Heads (Congleton) Ltd, an independent publisher founded in 1893, and was launched in December 2011 as the newest edition of their series of Chronicle newspapers together with the Biddulph Chronicle, the Congleton Chronicle and the Sandbach Chronicle. Remarkably, the series has had only four editors since the company was founded: original founder Robert Head, his son Lionel, John Condliffe – who bought out the company in 1988 – and currently his son Jeremy.

All the series’s newspapers share the same website; the link below is to the Alsager news page.

It comes out on Thursdays; a paid e-edition and an iPad/iPhone app (of the Congleton Chronicle) are also available.
