Some Background on Surrey and Hants News

The Surrey & Hants News is Surrey’s oldest local newspaper, established in l859.

A series of managers and editors including Phil Green, the late Guy Bellamy and Jean and Ted Parratt oversaw the development of the News from its original broadsheet to its current tabloid format.

This free paper with its very long history is extremely popular in West Surrey. It has been in the ownership of the independent Tindle Newspapers Group for almost 50 years.

Today, its editor is Joyce Sharland-Brown. The Advertising Manager is Kelly Mitchell.
