Write an Article!

We want Seaside News to be written by Seaside residents, for Seaside residents. We’d love to hear what you have been thinking about recently. You can write an article about your current hobby, about an experience you’ve had, or your thoughts about a particular topic. It could be about how you spent your Christmas or New Years Eve. It can be long or short. It can be about being a Seaside resident, or about a completely different aspect of your life.

If your article is chosen to be published, you’ll be sent a £25 gift voucher!

Tips for Residents

In our Autumn 2022 edition, one lovely resident shared how she used stick-on cladding to transform the look of her fridge and washing machine! Do you have a handy tip you’d like to share with Seaside residents? It could be about making household chores easier, decorating tips, or maybe you’ve found a great cheap lunch in Brighton & Hove and want to share.

If your tip is chosen to be published, you’ll be sent a £25 gift voucher!

We’d love for you to be involved in the designing, editing, or proof reading of Seaside News! No experience necessary and we can provide you with training. Flex your creativity and gain great skills and experience! Email to get involved.
