Who we are:

is a small not-for-profit volunteer community organization. We produce a monthly community newspaper which we distribute free to every household in Shirehampton. We also run a website, on the Web, which reproduces the monthly printed paper with some additional material that did not make it into print. All of our committee members, editors and distributors are volunteers. No one is paid anything. We cover our costs through advertising and distribute any monies remaining after costs as grants to local community organizations.

What data we collect:

We collect and keep names, and contact email addresses or telephone numbers and in some cases postal addresses from our volunteers, our committee members and our distributors.

We also have contact details of current and past advertisers which we keep for billing and marketing purposes. Advertisers can ask to have their details removed from our contact lists at any time. click here
