“ A weekly paper for Gloucestershire. „
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.

The way we were
Lots of old photographs of old and people trying to find someone from the past.
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.
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.
