A papur bro (local paper; plural papurau bro) is a Welsh-language local community newsletter, produced by volunteers and generally published monthly. The first such publication was Y Dinesydd, established in Cardiff in April 1973.[1] There are currently 58 papurau bro, produced throughout Wales.[2] With changing times and appetites, more modern, online versions of papurau bro have started to appear such as: Pobl Caerdydd (Cardiff), Pobl Aberystwyth, Pobl y Fro (Vale of Glamorgan) and Pobl Dinefwr.

During 2015-2016, Papurau bro had a combined distribution of 66,808 copies each month.[3]
