About Tooting Newsie

We keep you up-to-date with all the latest Tooting news and events by curating and sharing the most relevant stories through our website and over on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages. We feature content from local newspapers, independent bloggers, schools, community groups, charities, sports teams, neighbourhood and business associations. We want to create a place where all the voices of Tooting can be heard and help to connect the community.

Why Tooting Newsie?

Tooting Newsie is part of the Newsie hyperlocal network of sites. Newsie was formerly known as Daily PRSS, until rebranding in September 2019, which led to all local sites under it (such as Tooting Daily PRSS) also changing their name to Newsie.

How does the website work?

We curate the most credible resources on the web. Provider feeds are showcased in an easy-to-read format that streams live, with the latest stories appearing first, linking to the original source of each article.

I’m holding an event in Tooting. Can you post something about it?

Of course! Go to to submit your event and we’ll give you a shout-out on either Twitter or Instagram Stories. Don’t forget to add start and end times, date, location, details and an image, or else it won’t be accepted on the site. If it’s a regular event (e.g. same day / time every week), then you’ll only need to submit it once – please specify in the notes and we can set it to auto-repeat.

I want to send you a press release. What do you need?

If you wish to submit your press release for consideration on our site, please email with 300-500 words – don’t forget to include relevant links/social media details, contact details, and a few good quality photos (or a video if you have one).

How do I submit my blog for your website?

To feature your local blog or website on Tooting Newsie, email the RSS feed or URL to for consideration.

I’m involved in a local charity/community group/religious group/non-profit. Can you help spread the word about the work we do?

Absolutely – we publish regular blogs on non-profits all around Tooting as we’re passionate about making a noise about the great work they do in the area. Email for more info.

We’re a new business in Tooting. Can you help us get the word out?

Please email with brief details of your business (with links to your website and social media) and a few high-quality pictures (including one of you and your team), and we’ll post on our feeds.

I have a petition that I’d like to publicise – can you share it?

We’re afraid not, as we need to remain an impartial news source, and sharing a petition could be construed as us supporting it. Also, sharing one petition sets a precedent for sharing all future petitions. However, readers are welcome to share a link to a petition in the comments of a post on our social media feeds (providing of course that the petition relates to the post and is not offensive in any way).
