Eastsider News – A Source of Community News
The primary intent and purpose of Eastsider News is to ‘provide a free independent local media platform that focuses on showcasing substantial news about, and affecting, the diversity of local people and their activities’. It is community-based and not-for-profit, rather than commercial.
For the first years of our existence, we have done this by publishing a digital newspaper every two months. We have received many compliments about the high production values and attractive appearance of this format.
We have found, however that this standard is very difficult to maintain with both limited financial and people power. We now want to try a different way to do this.
In future, we will post the contributions that we receive from our friends and supporters along with articles written by members of our team of volunteers as a newsletter. We hope this will make us more sustainable and able to publish more frequently. We will send our subscribers a regular email that tells you what we have published lately and contains links to the latest edition.
