The OST News printed by Newspaper Club

Community chronicle

Old School Thornhill is a Scotland-based entrepreneurial space supporting community groups, charities, small businesses and creatives based in the local area. To date, they've raised £2.5 million for the project, helping to foster creative collaboration and benefit the surrounding rural villages.

The reactions from the community have been "hugely positive," says project manager Samuel Sparrow, and it helped to successfully encourage lots of new member sign-ups.

"Our opening event was very well attended and a huge success, and this coincided with the newspaper hitting people's doorstep, courtesy of the distribution provided by Newspaper Club".

Springlore printed by Newspaper Club

Spring's song

Based in Scotland, Hospitalfield is a historical building dedicated to contemporary art and ideas, serving as a place to work, study, learn, visit and enjoy for the local community. 

This year, Hospitalfield joined forces with Artist Fiona McCubbin to invite a small group to explore the subtle seasonal shifts of Spring in the gardens. Over weeks, the group recorded changes through image making and botanical dying, resulting in a collaborative botanical sculpture marking the beginning of spring

To showcase their results, the team chose a zine-style digital mini called Springlore.

"It was so satisfying to be able to share a publication as a memento of the project that everyone had worked so hard on together," says Programme Manager Kirsten Wilson. "We wanted something to feel like a zine and to be easily shareable, so a newspaper was perfect for that!".
