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

The Thirsk Weekly News

The Thirsk Weekly News is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in Thirsk, Sowerby and nearby villages in North Yorkshire.

It was launched in July 2004 as a counterpart to The Easingwold Advertiser. It’s published and printed independently by family-owned company G H Smith & Son, from their offices in Easingwold.

Nominally, it comes out on Saturdays, but it actually appears in the shops on Wednesday evenings. The previous free archived e-editions were replaced at the beginning of 2013 by a paid-for service, which enabled the current week’s edition to be published online.
