The Messenger faces a challenging year. We need to secure additional grant funding to continue the project as it is, but whatever happens we hope to be able to produce six issues this year. We have been successful in the first stages of our Lottery and Tudor Trust bids, and we are waiting to hear if our second stage applications have been accepted.
Whatever the outcome we know we will need the help of our volunteers to keep the newspaper going and to make it as good as it can be.
If you would like to join our voluntary team of writers, photographers, proofreaders and editors, please get in touch on 242 0564.
