Messenger editorial

20th anniversary issue

The first issue of the Messenger was published in July 1999, and since then we have distributed over one and a quarter million copies of the paper to households in Burngreave.

For our 20th anniversary edition we will be featuring some of our favourite pieces and bringing back memories of those heady noughties days! If you have a favourite story, photo, or any other memory of the Messenger’s work, please let us know by emailing
