The Crescent-News

The Crescent newspaper was re-launched in 2014 as an electronic web based newspaper initially published monthly for the pilot and subsequent issues and this was reduced to weekly every Friday thereafter . The tabloid 12 page format launched in 2003 failed due to the massive overheads of printing and distributing community based paper, it was decided to take advantage of the latest developments in e-publishing and re-launch the paper as an electronic web based publication. The Crescent newspaper is an independent community based publication and encourages and promotes independent editorial comment and news content. It draws on communal journalistic resources in a broader sense if the definition from across the British Isles and Eire, but is not confined by the perceived definition of Community Journalism. [1]
