Alcester Standard (defunct)

The Alcester Standard was a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to households in the towns of Alcester and nearby Bidford-on-Avon in South West Warwickshire.

It was a local sub-edition of the larger Redditch Standard – into which it was merged in 2010 – and was published by Bullivant Media, successor to the original Observer Standard Newspapers founded in 1989 by Chris and Pat Bullivant. OSN went into administration in March 2009, but the Bullivants were able to rescue most of their titles from closing.

The Alcester Standard had no website of its own; the URL given below used to redirect to the Redditch & Alcester Standard‘s website, but has now been registered by a different company.

It came out on Fridays.
