Letters to the Editor

Shire is a community newspaper, and as such it is important to us that we hear from local residents. We love spreading community news and we love to hear from our readers. Please, send us your letters and photographs!


If requested, we will not print the name on a letter written to us, but we are unable to accept an anonymous letter.

Letters 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.


You can submit letters to our editors in 3 ways.



Post:  Shire Publications

           Shirehampton Library,

           Shirehampton Public Hall,

           Station Road,



           BS11 9TU.

By Hand: Paper copies can be handed into Shirehampton Library.


Editorial Policy

We welcome contributions for publication in Shire but reserve the right to edit any copy received.

Any material published is at the editor's discretion and may also be included on our website unless clearly stated otherwise.


All letters to the editor must include a name and address though, if requested, we will not print them.

Please Note:

To meet the deadline with our typesetters all written copy (whether email or paper) must be submitted by the 10th of the preceding month.
