Shire is a community newspaper, and as such it is important to us that we receive articles from local residents about local issues and events. If there is something that you would like to share with the community, then please do send us your article!


We do ask that copy is kept to a length of 500 words. Images and photographs to accompany your article would be more than welcome!

Articles are free to publish, but Shire is a voluntarily run newspaper so if you are in a position to be able to make a small donation that would be greatly received.
