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 firstname.lastname@example.org
