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

Kronika (defunct)

Kronika was a Polish-language weekly newspaper for the town and surrounding area of Reading in Berkshire.

It was published by Berkshire Regional Newspapers, a subsidiary of the Berkshire Media Group (which itself is a subsidiary of the Dunfermline-based Romanes Media Group group, formerly Clyde & Forth Media). Its origins lay in a one-off Polish-language edition of the Reading Chronicle in 2006. It was so popular that it went into continuous production as the Reading Kronika and gave rise to Kronika titles for Slough and Bracknell. However, it went into decline as many Polish families left the UK with the economic downturn. It closed in 2009.
