It was established in 1980. It’s published by Archant South West as a companion to the paid-for weekly tabloid the Weston & Somerset Mercury, with which it shares editorial offices in Weston-super-Mare.
Although it’s a freesheet, a tiny proportion of each print run (less than one per cent) is sold through the news trade.
It comes out on Wednesdays. An e-edition is also available (free) on the website.
