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 and 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 friends, and welcome to this, our Spring 2019 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need and want. As ever, we must offer our sincere thanks to our readers, advertisers and distributors, without whom there wouldn’t be a CN. We couldn’t do it without you. 

So, the Christmas and New Year festivities are a distant memory now, and we’re all back into the swing of things! Right? Well, almost. If, like me, you’re still carrying that additional winter weight you acquired in December, it might be advisable to use January (which someone seems to add an extra day to every year) to make some adaptable new year resolutions, think about your goals, and then see how you feel. 

I’ll be honest, January is my least favourite time of the year – cold, dark, and seemingly going on for months! Add to that the inevitable comedown of knowing I’m at the furthest point from my favourite time of the year, it’s always a relief to fold away that first page of the calendar and see February looming large. Roll on the Spring and start thinking about the Summer.
