About Us

Unbiased, fact-checked local newspapers are as vital as ever.  

The Wisbech Standard has remained loyal to its roots and principles since it was founded in 1888. 

Wisbech is known as the capital of the Fens, and is one of Cambridgeshire’s largest towns and the centre of a vibrant, bustling economy. 

The Standard plays a vital role in reflecting its diverse community, campaigning on key issues to support the town and its rural villages. 

Throughout its history Wisbech has undergone massive change and continues to do so. 

The Wisbech Standard is always there to promote and help sustain that growth and to share the vision as the 21st century brings new challenges and opportunities.
