What are the challenges of running a community newspaper? What’s the best way to keep people informed about what is happening in our neighbourhoods? What are the skills that we need to ensure that we can capture and share stories that are relevant and meaningful, adding to the sense of belonging of our place? The Evington Echo has been around for over forty years, and manages to keep readers informed and up to date on what’s happening in the village of Evington in Leicester. Helen Pettman is the editor of the Evington Echo, and we spent time walking and chatting about what makes a good community newspaper, and the work of the Friends of Evington charity.
