We are pleased to have all editions here, back to 2001, all downloadable as PDF files.

The Portobello Reporter is a community newspaper that keeps the residents of Portobello and district informed of local events not covered elsewhere – social, political, economic and historical. First issued in June 1980, it is now a well-established quarterly, published at the beginning of March, June, September and December, by a small group of volunteers; it is designed in-house by Peter Ross, printed by The Stranraer & Wigtownshire Free Press, and distributed free to 12,500 homes, schools and businesses in the area by local firm, Premier Delivery.

The paper is non-profit making and is funded entirely by advertising by local businesses; it is therefore editorially independent, with no bias towards any political, governmental or religious organisations.

Contributions from local individuals and groups are vital to the production of the paper, and anyone with a story to tell, or information that may be of interest to the community should send it via e-mail ########

Photographs are also welcome, colour or b/w, print or digital, provided they are of suitable quality for reproduction, especially old photos for the Local History pages; all prints will be returned.

The printed version of this newspaper is published quarterly (in March, June, September and December) and these pages will be updated accordingly.

Not all the old editions are linked yet.
But we’ll get there soon!
