Please show your support for the E&L


HOLD the Front Page!, the project to save the Eskdale & Liddesdale Advertiser, is making good progress. We are targeting a fundraising of £100,000, not only to give the paper a fresh start but also to update the technology and make more use of other forms of media – social, YouTube, online, website etc – so that the E&L becomes more of a media company than a printed weekly newspaper.

We have been much encouraged by the expressions of support from community groups and clubs, businesses, the public sector and members of the public throughout both Eskdale and Liddesdale.

In applying for Funding, proof of need and support is always required and we would like to encourage every person, business, club and group in our communities to send us a Letter of Support saying in a few words that you support our efforts to retain the E&L as the vital source of news and information as well as the means of advertising within Eskdale or Liddesdale.

Our key funding application is being made to LEADER Dumfries and Galloway and we would like to gather as much support for this particular application by February 13.

This can be done by writing to the Eskdale & Liddesdale Advertiser, High Street, Langholm, DG13 0JH or emailing

So please get in touch - Hold the Front Page! and Save the E&L.
