The Shire Standard has a new look

From February, the Shire Standard will have a nice shiny new look - we are changing from a tabloid newspaper to a full colour, glossy, A5 magazine - and we'd love for you to be a part of it!

We deliver 9,000 copies of the Shire Standard to homes and businesses across the Uttoxeter area every month. It's a fact, our magazine reaches more people, more directly than any other publication serving Uttoxeter, whether that's a free magazine or paid-for newspaper.
