Welcome to the website of Hollingdean News – a community newsletter published and distributed by Hollingdean residents.
The current issue is normally on-line within a few days of the paper version being distributed and can be read on-line or downloaded as a PDF document. There is an archive of back issues of the newsletter. The website is a place where you can find out other information about Hollingdean News – such as copy deadlines, contact details.
The HN “staff” are all volunteers and are responsible for collating the news and articles, and for distributing the newsletter to every household in Hollingdean. The content for the newsletter comes from residents and local organisations.
Hollingdean News is managed by a committee. It has a written constitution and members are elected into different posts and areas of responsibility each year.
The constitution states that “Hollingdean News aims to provide a regular source of information for Hollingdean residents and encourage community participation through the provision of a regular free newsletter distribution service”.
The content of Hollingdean News is not simply information or a directory of local activities – it is a forum for raising awareness of local issues, for sharing our achievements and concerns about our neighbourhood, and for communicating our mutual interest in the place in which we live. It also acts as an outlet for residents to express themselves in a way they might not otherwise be able to do.
Please contact us if you have any questions about Hollingdean News or how it operates, or if you’d be interested in becoming a volunteer. Just use the Contact Us page, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on 07963 301 570.
