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 Summer 2022 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need. Summer is on the way, days are lengthening, temperatures are rising, and preparations are being made for a summer of (Covid-free with any luck) fun. So, get out there and enjoy everything that your local communities have to offer.

Platinum Jubilee celebrations

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to the celebrations for The Queen’s coming Platinum Jubilee. There are a number of events planned, including a street party in Church Road, Lingfield on Thursday, 2 June from 5.30pm before a torchlight procession to the beacon lighting that evening.

Dormansland Parish Council is working with a team drawn from all organisations across the village, drawing up a plan for a four-day programme that will celebrate the talents in the village, showcase the community spaces, and deliver a lasting art project for the village.
