Kent Messenger - Trusted by you since 1859

Originally known as the Maidstone Telegraph, the award-winning Kent Messenger (Series) is available in three local editions serving Maidstone & Weald, Malling and Medway.

Consistently recognised as the most read local newspaper in Kent, Kent Messenger was named Kent Newspaper of the Year at the Kent Press & Broadcast Awards 2018 and Weekly Newspaper of the Year (above 20,000) at the Regional Press Awards 2016.

We believe in giving local people 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.
