The Lockdown Gazette

The Lockdown Gazette is a newspaper for the digitally excluded of Newcastle and Gateshead and is a collective effort from the For Solidarity Network in response to exceptional circumstances imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

There have now been three issues of the Lockdown Gazette and they have been distributed to communities who might not have access to the internet during isolation.

Issue 3 is a student-led edition that aims to highlight the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on student volunteers from Newcastle University and the charities, community organisations and creative initiatives hosting them as part of their degree.

Digital versions of all three editions can be found below.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed!
