It’s hard to get hard news in Lewes district, and if you want to find out the real story behind the North Street development, the Cement proposals at Newhaven, the scandal of the sale of the 49 sites by Lewes council or the plans to turn the A27 into a motorway you will struggle to find a new source- until now.
Lewes Eye has a non-sectarian red/green perspective.
The facebook page may include some juicy scandal, but the magazine will feature detailed, fact checked, articles about what’s going on, on your doorstep that you are unlikely to find elsewhere. This means that there won’t be a new article every day or even every week, but only when there is something to say that no one else is saying. I have put up a few articles on www.lewesye.co.uk to give you a flavour of what it’s all about.
And this is where you come in:
THE LEWES EYE WANTS YOUR NEWS
Trying to get a story out there, but struggling?- send it to the Lewes Eye. Right now I’m particularly interested in the Newhaven planning proposals, North Street and the A27 motorway proposals and anything from the coastal towns (since I’m based in Lewes), but anything about any council that you are involved in, or anything else that you think needs exposure would be welcome. Your story normally has to be checkable, or, on occasions, if it is not, we may put it out under your name if you agree. Send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
- be about the Lewes District Council area or surrounding area
- be fact-based rather than opinion pieces
- be checkable, ideally by the use of hyperlinks to the original sources.
THE LEWE EYE WANTS READERS
None of this is any good if people don’t read the stuff. If you EITHER like the facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/theleweseye/ or sign up to the mailing list at www.leweseye.co.uk then you will get sent links to new articles when they appear. Please do one of these and forward this email to other people who you think might be interested.
