HISTORY OF MANDEVILLE WEEKLY

The Mandeville Weekly Community Newspaper was established on June 16, 1993 to highlight the achievements and problems of the residents of Central Jamaica.

In eight years the Mandeville Weekly Newspaper has expanded its coverage to include the parishes of St. Elizabeth, Manchester, Clarendon and Westmoreland in South, Central and Western Jamaica.

The Mandeville Weekly Newspaper offers free advertising to all service clubs, churches, schools and other non-profit organisation seeking publicity for their fundraising events and public notices. In addition our “Jobs Wanted” column is free of charge to unemployed residents.

In 1996, the Mandeville Weekly Community Development Ltd., a non-profit arm of the newspaper was registered in response to the overwhelming requests for help from mainly farming communities. The Community Development Division is currently implementing a number of technological projects such as Agricultural Information Centres with the help of the International Institute for Communication and Development, Netherlands, a Flavour Extraction Project, an indigent housing assistance programme, etc.

At Mandeville Weekly we take our motto seriously, “Our community is our responsibility.”
