The Guardian - Your Local Community Newspaper

The Guardian is a FREE community newspaper and prides itself on its "parochial approach" to local news, sports coverage, trade advertising, public notices and all the other services which a good local newspaper is expected to provide. We have been in the market place 20 years, publishing 28/32 pages every Wednesday to meet the growing demand for advertising space, local stories and sport.
