About Wotton Times 

Wotton Times is a treasured example of a success story in modern local journalism. Set up in 2018 as a hyperlocal community-driven paper, the pages have recently been developed, by listening to what our readers and advertisers want. And it’s now a quality A4 glossy coffee table magazine! 
Boosted by the ongoing support of Renishaw PLC, the area’s largest employer, we've now become the go-to publication for coverage of community and social life in this part of the Cotwolds. 
Back in 2018, the launch of Wotton Times caught the eye of national media and BBC news for its passion in chasing stories that are unique. And, as of our adoption of magazine format, we now focus on the human stories behind the news. Sharing decades of media experience, the passionate team is comprised of multi-tasking publisher Jan Baber, ace photographer Matt Bigwood and graphic design wizard Jason Titley, together with some prolific freelance writers. 
"Despite the advent of digital media, Wotton Times' success proves the appetite for quality local journalism endures. We aim to sustain this in the future by giving the community the coverage it loves.”
