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

The Packet

The Packet is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper delivered to households in the Cornish cathedral city and county town of Truro and the towns of Camborne and Redruth.

It’s published by Newsquest (South West) and is one of a series of Packet newspapers sold or distributed free in central and south-western Cornwall, from editorial offices in Falmouth.

It was launched in January 2013 as a replacement for two earlier freesheets in the series: the Truro Packet and the Camborne & Redruth Packet.

Its news content is negligible; almost the entire paper is given over to advertising.

It comes out on Wednesdays. A free e-edition’s also available via the website.
