Often referred to as simply 'The Local', the Sheerness Times Guardian has been serving The Island in one form or another for over 150 years. The Sheerness Guardian was published two years before the first road link to the Isle of Sheppey was established with the first Kingsferry Bridge, a ramshackled wooden affair and the Sheerness Times was launched in opposition a decade later. By September 1939 the two papers had merged.
Our aim is to provide a local news and information service, an independent voice on Sheppey and a forum for Islanders' views and opinions. We value our readers and customers for their loyalty and support and try to meet their expectations by bringing the best quality newspapers in the marketplace week-in, week-out.
We believe in giving the people of Sheerness a voice and try to reflect on every aspect of life in the area. Our editorial staff operate independently and we aim to ensure that everything we do is balanced, neutral and representative. We pride ourselves on making sure that everything we do is checked, verified and true.
