The Henley Standard, published by the Higgs group, is one of the few remaining independent weekly newspapers in the UK.

First published in 1885 under the title The Henley Free Press, the Standard has been owned by the Luker family since 1919.

Based in Henley-on-Thames, in Caxton House, the building purchased by Charles Luker in 1919, the Henley Standard prides itself on providing comprehensive, unbiased, accurate news coverage to Henley on Thames and the communities in the South Oxfordshire area.

With over 32,000 readers each week*, the Standard has unrivalled

coverage of the Henley area. A report commissioned in 2007 found that 92% of adults in Henley read the paper in any given month and 94% consider it the best source of local news.

In 2007, the Standard relaunched the website, Within a year of the launch date, the site had joined the Telegraph and Guardian websites to be shortlisted in the Newspaper Awards 2009 in the Best Use of New Media category. Soon after, the site was runner-up in the Multimedia Publisher of the Year category at the Regional Press Awards.

Each year, the Higgs group publishes a comprehensive business directory

the Henley Pages, which is delivered to every household in the area. The corresponding website, is the only comprehensive business directory serving the Henley on Thames area.

Henley Life and Homes, a lifestyle magazine aimed at contemporary country living, was added to the titles published by the Higgs group in 2004. The title is a complimentary publication distributed to 11,000 homes and available in many estate agents and selected retail outlets in the area.
