Community based newsletter - contributions wanted

We received this from Andrea Stewart, regarding contributions to the next ‘Up Your Street’ round:

I am working on the local area newsletters – ‘Up your street’ - the next editions of which are due out in January. There are separate editions covering the town centre areas of Norwood, Clapham, Streatham, Brixton, Stockwell and North Lambeth.

We would really like to include some community based stories in these next ones, as we are aiming for the newsletters to become a community resource where different organisations and groups can promote their successes, events and initiatives to each other. This could be to let their neighbours know of important local issues or to encourage them to go along to events within their area. The fact that each household receives a copy of the tailored newsletter makes it a great way to get exposure to local residents. Those living in Lambeth will have received a copy back in September and hopefully found them a good read… We believe including some more community focussed stories would make them even more useful for our residents!

It would be great if organisations / contacts could contribute to these newsletters. We are looking for contributions to be with us by 15 November in order to put the newsletters together by the Christmas break. I would just ask that any article offers are not Christmas/New Year holiday related as these will be going out in mid-January.

I am more than happy to be contacted directly by anyone who would like to contribute to discuss any ideas or offer help in any way. The email address / phone number below are the best way to get in touch.

Many thanks for your help
