About us

A 21st Century News Desk for a 21st Century Bedford

The Bedford Independent was founded to provide the people of Bedford Borough with a modern news desk that would give them easy access to genuine and unbiased Bedford news. We are independent in ownership and opinion.

Our mission is to inform and inspire the people of Bedford. To do this we will work hard to bring them the news that matters to them from our town centre to the most rural of the Borough’s villages.

Our editorial team are NCTJ trained and follow a standards code set out by the independent press regulator IMPRESS Standards. You can read the IMPRESS Regulatory Scheme and Standards Code here.

The following pages will tell you more about the Bedford Independent:
