The Wiveliscombe Messenger strives to give its readers the best in traditional local journalism. Articles and letters from scores of contributors celebrate and help build the warm and lively community in the 10 Parishes which the paper serves, and incisive reporting from the editorial team tackles complex matters which affect the whole community - planning, health, education and more - taking a local perspective on national issues.
The Wiveliscombe Messenger is part of the Tindle group of newspapers.
We welcome articles, letters, diary entries and photos from members of the community. Please email contributions to the Editor, Lucy Sloan, on firstname.lastname@example.org. For people who don't have access to a computer, there is a pigeonhole for Messenger mail at the Community Office in Wiveliscombe House, The Square, Wiveliscombe. Articles need to be succinct, as we prefer to include lots of short articles from lots of contributors, rather than just a few long ones. The advised lengths for articles are:
- up to 100 words for a brief announcement
- 100 - 120 words for a regular group update
- 120 - 180 words when there is more than one matter to cover within one article
- up to 220 words for big, complex news
Photos and images should be sent as high resolution jpegs.
