About the The Comet


Local news by local journalists based in local offices – that's the aim of the Comet's team, both in print and online.


Thursday's newspaper is produced across three editions to serve the communities of Stevenage, Hitchin, and Letchworth & Baldock – as well as the surrounding North Herts and Central Beds villages.


Together with its associated website, it offers the most comprehensive local news service to the widest readership in the area.


The Comet, a pioneer of free newspapers when it was established in 1971, is regularly hailed by industry judges as one of the best free titles in the country and is recognised by readers and advertisers for its quality journalism, community focus and campaigning stance.
