News Awards 2021

In 2021 three of our newspapers – Enfield Dispatch, Waltham Forest Echo and EC1 Echo – were shortlisted for the News Awards 2021 category of ‘Independent Community Newspaper of the Year’.

The Dispatch came in second as a ‘highly commended’ publication with the judges commenting: “Fantastic use of reader contributions and engagement with the community is key to the success of Enfield Dispatch. A good balanced read, oozing quality from start to finish with its excellent use of white space and large imagery.”
