Your Shepway (defunct)

Your Shepway was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the District of Shepway in south-eastern Kent, including the towns of Folkestone and Hythe and the Romney Marsh area.

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.

It came out on Wednesdays. It was originally delivered direct to households and through a variety of pickup points, as well as through an e-edition online or by email. It went digital-only from January 2011; the last edition appeared in December 2012, although the website’s still updated.
