Bedfordshire on Sunday

Bedfordshire on Sunday (BoS) was a free local newspaper published in Bedfordshire, England. The newspaper was distributed as two editions, one covering the Borough of Bedford, the other edition serves Central Bedfordshire. The gross distribution was around 112,000. The newspaper was distributed using either through delivery through letterboxes on a Sunday morning, or more recently given out at local supermarkets, newsagents and other local points of interest. The paper was published by LSN Media Ltd which was previously owned by Frank Branston. Branston, who founded the newspaper in 1977, went on to become the first directly elected mayor of the borough of Bedford in 2002. Branston sold his share of LSN to Iliffe News and Media in 2005. In 2012, Local World acquired Iliffe News & Media from Yattendon Group, and in turn this was acquired by Trinity Mirror. The newspaper's last edition was on 1 October 2017, and was replaced by a midweek newspaper with less emphasis on news and more on leisure activities called Bedfordshire Midweek, however this was closed after eight months of publication.
