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.

Editorial

Hello again friends, and welcome to this, our Autumn 2022 edition of Community News, bringing you the local news and information you need.

Autumn? Seems a little odd writing that as I sit here, in hot, still air, the first days of what the BBC assures me is going to be a week-long heatwave. But with the nights now drawing in, despite the fact it really doesn’t feel that way, looking ahead and making plans never hurts.

Smaller, but just as powerful

Community News, despite our best efforts, has been unable to shield itself from the cost-of-living issues affecting millions of people across the UK. Advertisers don’t have as much to spend, and printing costs have markedly risen over the past year or so, meaning our financial reserves are depleting fast.

So, despite the loyal support of our long-standing advertisers, and occasional grant and financial contributions from local organisations, we have found ourselves needing to make some changes. And one of those will be reducing the size of CN from 64 pages to 32, starting with the Winter 2022 issue, CN225.
