Notes for contributors             Hints for authors             Newsletter advertisers

Our Community Newsletter is now an established feature of village life. Published quarterly, it is currently a 24-page, A4, full-colour. ‘journal’ containing a mix of public information, articles and community group notices. Distributed free to every household in Clarborough and Welham. Clarborough  Primary School also provides 50+ copies for families who live outside our immediate community. Further  we place batches of Newsletters in Retford (Denman) Library, Bassetlaw Action Centre, Retford Hub, Bookworm (Retford), HOPE shops in Retford and Worksop and also BCVS (Worksop) as well as several other online outlets. Copies are also placed (for ‘passing trade’) at Clarborough’s King Stores SPAR outlet, Kings Arms plus Howbeck Garage. Our print run is currently 600. Many pages are also read online since this website contains current and back issues of our Newsletter (see below).

Finance for this initiative was, for many years, divided between our community IT Group and revenue from advertising. Our Parish Council has provided a significant grant towards the printing costs in recent years although the Newsletter remains editorially independent. From Autumn 2015 a local entrepreneur, who wishes to remain anonymous, has provided printing services free-of charge for 12 months and has agreed to continue to do so at a reduced rates until our Autumn 2018 issue.. We are currently seeking funding streams or sponsorship to continue this full-colour production for the foreseeable future.

To discuss any Newsletter aspects please contact our editor, Greg, on (01777) 700 918 or clarboroughwelham@gmail.com

We are in urgent need of help with Newsletter distributions - no ‘patch’ is too small! Our trusty band of volunteers are sometimes really stretched, particularly at times of holidays or illness. If you would be prepared to help our team, please get in touch with Greg (see foot of page) to discuss - everyone will be very grateful.
