Meet the News team

We now have regular reporters’ surgeries in Ripley and Heanor each week – and we want you to come and meet us.

We run our surgeries at Ripley Town Hall on the Market Place on Thursdays from 10am and on Fridays we are based at Salcare in Ray Street, Heanor, also from 10am.

This is your chance pop in and to tell us about your news, sport and up and coming events.

It also a chance for you to let us know what you’d like to see in the News.

You can drop off your letters, Memory Lane pictures, free small ads and the likes at the surgeries.

If you can’t make it to the surgeries, don’t worry, as we also have a free community postbox in Ripley, where you can drop off your items.

The postbox is inside the Save ‘n’ Save shop, in High Street, Ripley, opposite the Qube club.

Just leave your notes, letters and reports here for us and we’ll pop along an collect them.

You can also email us at or call us on 0115 9 446160.

Or if you prefer, you can pop into our office at the Ilkeston Advertiser offices in Ilkeston at 8 Heanor Road, DE7 8ER, opposite Weleda.

We look forward to seeing you.
