About the Lingfield and Area Community News

The team

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.

Delivery team

We have over 70 volunteers who each deliver copies of Community News to their neighbourhood. Many hands make light work they say and we find this is the most effective way to get the News delivered.
