Welcome to Downside magazine


Dear Downsiders!


Our Spring edition of the Downside magazine is now out and available to download.


We have had an excellent start in 2018 because our team is expanding and we have new volunteers - Annmarie, Emma and Jurgita. This edition has been edited by Jurgita, who has done graphic design before and we all think the magazine looks great.


Another excellent news this year is that we have, for the first time, received a grant from National Lottery Awards for All towards the running costs of the Downside magazine. This, together with all our other sponsors, helps us continue to deliver this small community magazine to all of you. Receiving this award shows how important the magazine is for Downside and that the hard work everyone on our team is putting in on their own time and for free is appreciated. We are trying to make a difference and this shows that we are on the right path.


It has been a very challenging edition as we received a lot of great articles and information, and because we like to include everything sent to us Jurgita worked really hard to fit it all in.


We hope you enjoy reading the magazine and maybe attend some of the featured events happening on Downside and Blows Downs.


For a quick dates check please look at The Dates For Diary at the back of the magazine or look at Local info & Diary page on this website. There are articles and events for all ages and we hope you find all the information helpful and articles enjoyable.


If there is anything you would like to see in the Downside magazine in the future, please drop us an email or post us a letter.


Get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!


Take pride in Downside!
