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

The Gazette

The Gazette is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in Paisley and surrounding parts of Renfrewshire, a circulation area including Erskine, Renfrew, Linwood, Johnstone, Kilmacolm, Lochwinnoch and Neilston, as well as Barrhead in the neighbouring East Renfrewshire council area.

It was founded in 1864 as the Paisley & Renfrewshire Gazette and kept that title (barring three years from 1967 to 1970, when it was simply the Renfrewshire Gazette) until the end of 2002; it relaunched under its present title in January 2003.

It’s published by the Clyde Weekly Press group (part of the Romanes Media Group, formerly Clyde & Forth Press). The editorial offices were formerly in Paisley, but have now moved to share CWP’s premises in Clydebank.

There’s a separate local edition for Barrhead, the Barrhead News.

It comes out on Wednesdays.
