The goal of the Parliament Street News and the Church Street News is to enable people, businesses and organizations to share their stories with each other. We do this by offering free content to anybody that would like to contribute. We also offer very affordable rates to advertisers with a budget for marketing. Our pricing is designed to be less than the cost of designing, printing and delivering postcards or flyers.
All content is contributed by the community. We welcome all bio’s, community notifications, recipes, restaurant reviews, travel columns, book reviews, wine reviews, anything goes. We need content and we always need advertisers. Kids articles are always great as are ideas, thoughts, poetry and nice local images.
