Lingfield and Area Community News

Lingfield & Area Community News is a non-profit making, free newspaper, which has been going since 1976. Now published 4 times a year, it is distributed to every household in Lingfield, Crowhurst, Dormansland, Dormans Park, Felcourt and parts of Newchapel, Haxted, Horne and Baldwins Hill - in total over 4200 copies. It carries local news, articles, reports from organisations and letters, bringing an enthusiastic response from many of our readers. Lingfield & Area Community News is able to do all this because of advertising revenue, donations and grants, but most of all because of the voluntary work carried out by a large team of people from our community.


Hello again one and all! Welcome to this, our Spring 2017 edition of Community News. Well, we trust everyone had a darn good Christmas and New Year, which seemed to be over far too quickly (for me at least).

Once again, let’s start with a big ‘thank you’ to our readers, advertisers and distributors, without whom we really couldn’t do anything. You guys make this publication possible, and we like to think we’re really making a difference to the local community, raising concerns and disseminating the information people want. We’d also like to ask if anybody out there would like to help us with CN’s distribution and delivery? We could certainly use some more deliverers, so if you could spare a few hours every quarter, please get in touch.

How many of you visited Coughlans Bakery in the run up to Christmas? I remember at least two visits for myself, grabbing more than my fair share of doughnuts and iced fingers. It’s so nice to have a bakery in the village, and I for one intend to keep making full use of it.
