Martin O’Donnell at Priory Green passed this on. Good to see that someone can afford to print and distribute in this economic climate. Presumably they will follow the successful Hackney Citizen model. Also check out the great site Martin is running – Barnsbury Living.

Asviu Press London and the Barnsbury Community Group are collaborating in launching a not-for-profit independent local publication to promote citizen journalism, community participation and showcase local culture and arts.
We are seeking to engage local people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life, by offering them the opportunity to report on local events and news stories, particularly those that impact on or involve the local community.
The newspaper will reflect the rich cultural mix of Angel, Barnsbury and Islington, with features on local community and cultural events and providing a guide to what’s going on in the local area as well as cultural contributions, such as poetry, art and photography.
We are interested in social, political, economic and cultural events that affect the community, and seek to involve local people and organisations in reporting them. We are looking for local people and representatives of local groups who are willing to contribute to the newspaper, either as one-off or on a regular basis.
No experience is necessary, just an inquisitive nature and an interest in journalism, ideas for interesting local stories or artistic or cultural contributions. Photographers and interviewers are also welcome, as are people with knowledge of web publishing.
If you are interested in contributing, please contact Sergio at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nick on 020 7021 4607.
