Folkestone & Hythe Extra

The Folkestone & Hythe Extra is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes, distributed through pickup points and handed out brand-to-hand in the Channel port and seaside resort of Folkestone, the neighbouring smaller town of Hythe, and nearby villages including Lympne.

It’s published by the KM Group (originally the Kent Messenger Group). It was previously a companion to their weekly paid-for tabloid for southern Kent, the Kentish Express, but has had a new sister paper since 16 October 2013, the Folkestone & Hythe Express. The editorial offices are in Ashford and are shared with both Express newspapers and another title in the Extra series, the Ashford Extra.

It comes out on Fridays. An e-edition also used to be available online via a dedicated website: . However, the website now redirects to the Folkestone & Hythe Express website, and the e-edition itself seems to have been discontinued.
