South Leeds Life has gone into print with a free 12-page tabloid newspaper.
We have decided to go into print to reach more residents in the area, especially those who aren’t online yet. The newspaper will kick off a campaign to encourage more residents to volunteer their time and skills in the community. It also has a report from South Leeds Foodbank as well as looking ahead to summer galas, local history and sport.
This first edition of the newspaper is a pilot. If it is successful we hope to produce a regular monthly newspaper starting in the autumn. To be financially sustainable we will be looking for advertisers. We also need someone to sell advertising for us – this will be paid work so if you are interested please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We really want to know what you think of the newspaper, both good and bad points, so please get in touch once you’ve read it.
We previously had a partnership with local charity Health For All who published a quarterly magazine also called South Leeds Life, but they had to stop publishing in 2012 due to lack of funds.
