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

South Bucks Star

The South Bucks Star is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed in the south of Buckinghamshire, particularly the towns and suburbs around the fringes of western and north-western Greater London such as Gerrards Cross, Great Missenden, Princes Risborough and Chalfont St Peter.

It was established in 1981 as the Wycombe Star, but assumed its present title in 1984. Local editions were launched in 1990 – including a revived Wycombe Star as well as a Chiltern Star and Thame & Chinnor Star. By 1997, all had been reabsorbed into the parent title, which was renamed The Star that year. It reverted to the South Bucks Star in October 1998.

It’s published by Newsquest (London), and is a sister newspaper of the paid-for weekly tabloid the Bucks Free Press. The editorial offices are in High Wycombe.

It has no website of its own; its web presence is through the Bucks Free Press‘s website, on which it’s possible to read an e-edition of the Star online.

It’s published on Wednesdays.
