About us

Enfield Dispatch is the borough’s free community newspaper. It is published by Social Spider Community Interest Company, which runs two other papers in north-east London –Tottenham Community Press and Waltham Forest Echo.

The paper offers a platform enabling local people to highlight what matters to them. Voluntary contributors are welcome to write about projects they are involved with, campaigns they are running, or events they are organising.

The Dispatch is made available to pick up for free at cafés, pubs, community centres, libraries, doctor’s surgeries, schools, hair salons, and anywhere else wishing to stock it! Find your nearest distributor here.
