Submit a community news story

If your organisation has some news or an event you'd like to share with residents on the community news pages, via our social media accounts or in the weekly community e-newsletter, tell us about it here.

You will need

  • A high resolution image or photograph to illustrate your story, if possible. Make sure you have permission to use it.
  • A website URL where further information can be found.

Before you start

Please ensure:

  • Your story is 70 words or fewer
  • You only select the wards that the story is relevant to
  • You do not use bullet points within the text
  • Any images or photographs you submit are high resolution


If your story promotes an event, this will normally be published two weeks prior to the date of the event. Please do not submit events more than 4 weeks in advance.

You can upload a maximum of 5 events. If an event is repeated over several dates, we may include it as a story rather than event listings.

Content considerations

All material submitted must:

  • Adhere to the Council’s Equality and Diversity policy, and must not infringe anti-discrimination legislation
  • Not constitute political advertising
  • Be of a non-commercial nature (except for events or advertising sponsored by the Council or its approved agencies)
  • Not directly promote a religious cause - speakers or sales of work in religious venues should be considered as community events
  • Not be likely to cause offence to public taste and decency.

We will review your submission. Inclusion of any story is at our discretion and copy may be edited before publication. Stories will be considered for:
