Your Ashford (defunct)

Your Ashford was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the town of Ashford, nearby Tenterden and other surrounding villages in central Kent.

It was founded in 2007. It was published by KOS Media, who also publish the Kent on Sunday and Kent on Saturday weeklies for the whole of the county of Kent. The main editorial offices were in Smeeth near Ashford.

In June 2010 the Norwich-based Archant group acquired KOS Media outright, having had a minority shareholding since 2005.

Originally it was a print publication delivered direct to homes and distributed through various pickup points, as well as an e-edition available online from the website or by email. However, in January 2011 KOS Media made the Your… series online-only.

It came out on Wednesdays. The last issue appeared on 15 December 2012, although the website was still being kept up to date as of May 2013.
