Songs on Wheels are back on stage to jog your musical memories of mid-twentieth-century popular songs: the sublime, the ridiculous, and everything in between.

Looking further ahead, an evening of Shakespeare on film is taking place on 23 June from 7-9pm. From 1899 onwards and across every part of the world, Shakespeare has been a major feature of the film industry. In Hollywood and London, in Tokyo and Madagascar, his plays have been turned over and over again to be made into something fresh, timely and relevant, by the world's greatest film directors, actors and scriptwriters, whether using his own lines or translated, with fidelity or in distant adaptations. You are invited to the RHN for an illustrated talk from Professor Peter Holland with extracts from films both archival and modern, on Shakespeare’s role in the history of motion pictures.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied.
