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 friends, readers and residents, and welcome to the latest edition of Lingfield and the local area’s Community News, the local newsletter run by, with, and for, you. Thank you for taking the time to read what we create, and we hope you find it of use.

In what’s now becoming a welcome pattern, we have a few colour pages, which we’ve managed to afford thanks to the faithful support of our regular advertisers, as well as a few new ones who’ve come on board this year. We’re trying to use the pages as best we can, as we think a little splash of colour adds a certain something. 200th Edition The special editions just keep on coming! Hot on the heels of our 40th anniversary issue a little earlier in the year comes this, our 200th issue of CN. Yep, 200 editions and just over four decades of a local newsletter that — we hope — serves the community and provides you with the information you like to have.
