How to support local business through COVID-19 (Quartier Vanier BIA).
Inspired by the terrific limericks Burgh residents submitted to the “Great New Edinburgh Limerick Contest” of 1979, the NEN team thought it would be fun to revive this poetic challenge for 2020!
The criteria remain the same: Limericks must be on New Edinburgh subjects. Rhyme and metre must be correct. All limericks must be original!
Winning entries will be published in the April 2020 edition of the New Edinburgh News. Local notoriety will be your prize!
Deadline for submissions is March 10, 2020. Send your limericks to email@example.com.
The New Edinburgh Community Alliance’s Annual General Meeting will take place at St. Bartholomew’s church hall, 125 MacKay St. at 7 p.m. All New Edinburgh residents are welcome to NECA’s Annual General Meeting and to join the board!
The annual New Edinburgh Garage Sale will take place on Saturday, Sept. 21, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. throughout the neighbourhood.
This event is a fundraiser for the Crichton Community Council.
The New Edinburgh News is looking to build up its Advertising team.
We are looking for local residents who can help manage existing client relationships as well as bring in new advertisers. Working with the ad manager, managing editor and production manager, team members will communicate with clients by email, phone and in-person, arranging for up-to-date ad content.
Strong communication skills are essential, as is a passion for supporting local businesses and the community newspaper. Reliable internet connection and knowledge of Microsoft Excel required. Bilingualism an asset. Minimum 20 hours commitment for each edition.
The New Edinburgh News is a volunteer-run community newspaper that publishes five times per year. To learn more, contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
