I know the news has been heavily focused on coronavirus, lockdown and the ever-changing rules. This understandably can be overwhelming at times.

On the community we have been sharing positive stories from around the world and how the lockdown has led to kindness and environmental benefits. If you need a sprinkle of positivity I would recommend checking out that thread. :)

The Happy News

Yet if want a constant stream of feel-good stories, The Happy News is a newspaper which is published quarterly. It's a real newspaper which only celebrates the positive news. Basically a little piece of sunshine through your letterbox once every three months. Each issue is £3.99 but subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.

Every single day there are people helping others and doing incredible things in all corners of the planet and the majority of them aren't celebrated, but we think they deserve to be recognised.

We aim to bring a refreshing twist on what we typically know as 'news', reporting on positive changes and truly inspiring people.
If you don't want to receive a copy, but still want some positivity, you can read their news stories or follow The Happy News on Twitter or Instagram.

    We usually have our neighbours round twice a week for a cuppa and a natter, not been possible for ten weeks, however they came round on Monday we sat in the garden (socially distanced) for a brew and a catch up, cheered us all up.
    Be extra nice to new members.
