Local news – by residents – for residents
Welcome to Hollingdean News. We are a group of residents keeping our community informed with regular online news posts, and a quarterly community newsletter. For safety during lockdown volunteers ceased delivering newsletters directly to over 3000 homes. With restrictions easing deliveries are back to a full print run – so your Summer Hollingdean News should be through your door courtesy of our fantastic volunteer network.
Let us know if you’d like to help get to know your neighbours and neighbourhood better by helping us deliver Hollingdean News – firstname.lastname@example.org
