The Weston, Worle & Somerset Mercury is a weekly paid for newspaper that covers Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas of Somerset and North Somerset in England. The Weston Mercury was established 1 April 1843 and was family-owned for much of its history. It is now owned by publishing company Archant.[1]

It has won the Newspaper Society's Community Newspaper of the year award numerous times, most recently in 2007 and 2008.[2][3]

Its office is in the heart of Weston town centre. Also based in the Weston office is the Mercury's sister paper, the North Somerset Times, and the Midweek Mercury, a free weekly newspaper which incorporates the former free advert paper Admag.[1]
