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 2020 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need. Let’s begin with a big ‘thank you’ to our readers, advertisers and distributors, without whom there simply wouldn’t be a Community News.

So, as I write this, Christmas day was less than three weeks ago, and yet it already feels like an aeon. What happened to all the wonderful decorations, both in the village itself and in people’s houses? Suddenly, (and sadly for me personally, as I love Christmas) they’ve all gone, back in their box, but ready to reappear later this year – it doesn’t sound so bad when I say it like that.
