Tindle Newspapers Purchases Woking News & Mail

Tindle Newspapers has purchased the weekly title the Woking News & Mail, extending its reach into the Surrey marketplace.

The acquisition follows Tindle Newspapers’ purchase of eight titles in the Voice series, based in Truro, Cornwall, announced last month.

Tindle Newspapers owns newspapers and websites covering communities in Surrey, Hampshire, Cornwall, Devon, Isle of Man, Somerset, Essex and Wales. The group also owns radio stations in the Channel Islands and Ireland.

The heritage of the Woking News & Mail dates back to its launch in 1894.

Scott Wood, managing director of Tindle Newspapers, said: “We are pleased to add to our offering in Surrey by acquiring the Woking News & Mail.

“The News & Mail and its website will complement our current newspapers and digital platforms in the region, strengthening our reach in the local marketplace.

“We look forward to welcoming the Woking News & Mail team into the Tindle Group.”
