      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Although this is one paper you will find that it is differently published for different areas.

      The Cotswold addition covers Cirencester, Tetbury, Fairford, Lechlade, Northleach and the surrounding areas.

      It costs just 50p which isnt bad for all the local news.

      The paper is in two sections.

      Section 1

      Like all papers it gives all the previous weeks big stories and news.

      We then have family announcements. This is anything from birth to death and to make you feel better, on the same page they have whats in next weeks Standard.

      News digest

      Mostly this is what has been stolen or lost from which area. Makes the Cotswolds sound full of theft doesnt it.

      Gardening

      What you should be doing in your garden during the coming week.

      In the Courts

      This tell you what fines etc people have been given by the courts.

      Business

      All business news and any places new or closed.

      Letters

      This is nearly a whole page of letters written in by readers on all the latest news of the week.

      Clubs

      A good place to advertise your club or try to get some publicity for your club. It also has pictures of events that took place last week.

      Village News

      Every village has a representative who write in to tell all the things that have or are about to happen in the near future.

      The way we were

      Lots of old photographs of old and people trying to find someone from the past.

      Whats On

      Telling what is happening in the near future. There was only a little about the forth coming marriage in the Tetbury news items and I am afraid that was only to say that the people of Tetbury are not putting themselves out over this wedding.

      For Sales


      A couple of pages of cars up for sale, job vacancies

      The second part of the paper is all based on private sales whether it is for houses or smaller items for sale.

      The rest of the paper is filled with all the sport news.

      This paper comes out every Thursday. It is good value for money and does manage to get most of the news happening in each area.

      It is also very good to buy if you are just moving to the area.
