Tottenham Community Press is a free, independent, community newspaper which launched in November 2016. We publish monthly and distribute issues via community centres, pubs, cafes and directly to people’s doors.

Tottenham Community Press marks a return to real local news, giving readers the chance to learn more about what’s going on in their area and to read (and write) stories about what matters to them.

We want to provide an opportunity for local people to contribute and raise important issues. We aim to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of Tottenham, to celebrate its rich traditions and cultural heritage as well as offering a platform from which to hold authority to account.

Here’s our team:

Publisher: David Floyd

Editor: Luchia Robinson

Head of Community News Operations: Paige Ballmi

Designer: Jonathan Duncan

Head of Advertising and Membership: Klaudia Kiss

Head of Engagement: Penny Dampier

Our aim is to promote the work of local community organisations and voluntary sector groups, along with arts and cultural activities taking place in Tottenham. We are a not-for-profit newspaper, written by and for local people.  Most of our funding comes from local advertisers, while we also receive money from our membership scheme. All income is spent on making and improving Tottenham Community Press.

We are always looking for writers, photographers, local advertisers and anyone who wants to offer their support. Please get in touch with us at tcp@socialspider.com

  1. I welcome the new paper and enjoyed the first issue.

    I am a contacvt for the local Friends of the Earth group, and FLAG (Ferry Lane Action Group) the residents association for the Ferry Lane Estate.
    I would like to suggest an article about the proposed 21 storey development right next to the river and surrounded by Green belt land – the community persuaded the Planning Committee to reject it but we are waiting to see if the Mayor calls in the decision, or if the developer appeals to central government. Lots going on!

  2. Hello. I am one of the (76) Euroart Studios artists based at Gaunson House on Markfield Road in Tottenham. We host various events at this site, while it also serves as a building of multiple spaces in which to create. We will open our doors to the public for Open Studios, in the first week of June. At this time, I was wondering whether you would consider publishing an article on the space, the artists and our community connections. Might you be interested in writing such an article or would you rather have one of the Euroart artist-tenants do this (I would be happy to do so)?
    Regards, Donna.
