THE Harlow Harrier, founded in September 2010, is celebrating its first printed issue after kind donations from Barratt Homes.
After the Harlow Star closed earlier this year, Harlow residents were left without a printed news source.
Until now, the news source was solely distributed online and managed by NCTJ journalism students at Harlow College between September and June.
The Harlow Harrier is now able to deliver news for free to all Essex residents, bringing them the latest on student issues, jobs, sports news, local politics and local issues. It will be printed and distributed to the local area on a quarterly basis.
William Spalding (18), Student at Harlow College, said: “We are very grateful to Barratt Homes for giving us the opportunity to get our work distributed in print as well as on line. It was a great experience putting the paper together and we are looking forward to the next one.”
Marc Woolfe, Senior Sales Manager at Barratt Homes North Thames, said: “After the closure of the Harlow Star, residents of Harlow were left without a news source that they could rely on.
“We are delighted to be able to help bring the Harlow Harrier to life and wish students at Harlow College the best of luck with their futures.”
