By John Baron, editor

Is there a story we should be covering in your community? On Monday – for the first time since before Covid – we’re (re)launching our community news cafes, where people can come and meet our editor over a friendly cuppa and biscuits.

Our community news cafes are friendly and relaxed affairs and you’re welcome to pop in if you have a story or issue you’d like us to look into, if you’re interested in writing for us, or if you have something you’d like us to follow up, publicise or look into.

Feel free to drop in on Monday at our community newsroom in Bramley Lawn, Rossefield Lawn, off Rossefield Approach, Bramley from 10am-11.30am.

Our community news cafes are held every Monday from 4 July to 1 August 2022.

Community newsroom is open

Our community newsroom is open for you come and have a chat over a cuppa and biscuits if you have a story – and we also have a spare desk if you want to come in and write up an article, or do some research.

The newsroom is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays 10am-4pm, and Thursdays 4.30pm-8.30pm.

If you’re planning on popping in, give me, editor John Baron, a call on 07446 968140 or e-mail just to make sure I’m not out on a story!
