Here are the guidelines for writing a news story

When you send a story you need to:

  • Tell us who you are – tell us your name, if you’re writing about an organisation, what position you have (member, chair, etc).

  • Give us your contact details – your address and telephone number. These details are never published, and we do not give them to anyone without your permission.

Stories need to be about Burngreave or about something happening in the area.
