What do I do if I have community news?

We are always keen to receive editorial contributions from our community. Topics can be varied. If you have a story and want us to write it please contact us. We do not charge for editorial contributions unless they contain a lot of advertising material. In this case we charge for the amount of advertising space included. We would like to hear community opinions about any topics such as farming, education, community organisations.

Sports results and club news- we happily print these but prefer them to be emailed to us. Sometimes we receive very lengthy hand written or typed results which can take a long time to retype. (A charge may apply if this is a regular occurrence.)
