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 Winter 2019/2020 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need. As always, let’s start with a big ‘thank you’ to our readers, advertisers and distributors – there simply wouldn’t be a Community News without you guys.

It makes a nice change to be writing this editorial and have the weather taking on a distinctly wintry hue, with persistent, cold rain falling outside. There was also a refreshing chill in the air as I walked to the station this morning, and similar temperature met me when arrived back at the station in the early evening, mixed with the faint smell of wood smoke, such a lovely welcome home. 

Autumn is undoubtedly my favourite season – the colours, the weather, the chance to crack out that smart winter coat, and the growing anticipation of coming winter events, of which Lingfield and the surrounding areas are blessed with many. Read on, and you’ll see just how much Lingfield has to offer its residents.
