Community News is published every three months and is distributed to approximately 6000 homes and businesses in Underwood, Bagthorpe, Selston, Jacksdale and Westwood.
It is an entirely non-profit making organisation which is run by volunteers. There are no paid staff, however in order to produce, print and deliver the publication to all of the homes in the area, of course we do have expenses. We raise the funds for our printing and delivery costs mainly from advertising income, but also from small local grants and sometimes from our own fundraising activities. If you happen to come across any of our efforts to raise funds, please join in and be generous. And of course any donations would be well appreciated!
Our aims are to publish interesting and informative local news items, to include entertaining items like the quiz, to provide a platform for local businesses, community organisations and clubs on which they can advertise their services, and to help the local population to find the tradesmen or services they require. We like to help local businesses, community organisations and clubs as much as we can so our advertising fees are kept as low as we can possibly make them.
We are always on the look-out for local news items, local history stories and any other items you think might be of interest. Please contact us if you have anything to offer us for the next issue.
