Leys News

FREE independent community news for Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys

Your newspaper, your voice

This is a temporary holding page for Leys News. We're aiming to get a new website up and running very soon. To contact us, see below...

For anyone who hasn't come across us before, Leys News is a free Bi-monthly community newspaper delivered to over 5000 homes on Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys. An additional 2000 are also distributed to community spaces on the Leys and other areas of Oxford.

With support from volunteers, we are dedicated to providing a voice for the community of Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys.

Due to government rules concerning the current coronavirus crisis, we have currently put the next issue on hold for now, but we'll endeavour to go ahead as soon as the situation allows.

An e-text version of the latest Leys News can also be downloaded from this website.

Get involved

If you would like to volunteer as part of our team and help to produce your local independent newspaper please get in touch. We are always looking for writers, columnists, photographers and cartoonists.

In these exceptional times we would very much like to hear from you about the ways you are coping, issues affecting your life and how you feel the community on the Leys is responding. There are many key workers among us, and many who are not able to work just now. Many others, as well as looking after the family are finding ways to offer (socially distanced) services in the community, using their skills and hobbies. We would love to share your thoughts and ideas with everyone.

Send us a message using the form below or phone our office on 01865 711756

We also would like to hear from you if you want your local business, community group, club or sports team featured in the paper.
