North Somerset Times

The North Somerset Times (formally known as the Nailsea, Clevedon & Portishead Times, which is the title currently given in its masthead; North Somerset Times is generally used in the body of the newspaper) is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to homes in the North Somerset district, including the towns of Portishead, Clevedon and Nailsea and the smaller communities of Backwell, Congresbury, Easton-in-Gordano and Yatton.

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.
