About Us

The Ely Standard is the only local weekly newspaper for Ely, Soham, Littleport and East Cambridgeshire. 
It has a strong community focus, with annual business awards and others for outstanding achievement. 
The Standard has a bold editorial approach in its coverage of local government and is unafraid to hold those in authority to account. 
But it also accentuates the positives of a thriving, resilient and growing community that has become an international tourist centre and the beneficiary of Cambridgeshire’s booming economic enterprise. 
The paper was set up in the early part of the 19th century and continues to adapt – as it has done over the decades – to our fast-changing society.
