Share your photos and news with us

The Carrick Gazette is always keen to receive your news and to see photographs or videos of your special event or something interesting you’ve come across.

Some of the news and views we publish in our paper and on our website already come from our readers as well as from our own editorial team.

Now, we have a new website facility which will make sharing your words, pictures and videos with us much easier.

On our website,, you’ll be able to share stories, photographs and videos with us and our many readers simply by clicking on the icons in the “Share Your Story” box.

You’ll be able to:

n Tell us your story

n Send in your photographs

n Upload your videos

Maybe you’ve seen something you’d like others to know about. Perhaps you have news from your neighbourhood. We’re always looking to get our readers involved in the stories that matter most to them.

It could be you’ve reached a milestone. Perhaps broken a record or beaten the best. We love a feel-good story, especially if it comes with a photograph of any celebrations.

Or maybe you’re about to bathe in beans or are baking a cake for charity. Tell us what you’re doing to make a difference in your community and we’ll get right behind you.

Editor David Walker said: “We want everything in our paper and on our website to reflect the communities in which we all live. We know that lots of our readers want to share their news, pictures and videos with us and so we’re making it much easier for everyone to do this.

“We can’t promise to publish everything we receive, but we’ll do what we can to show as many as we can.”

The Carrick Gazette’s new upload tool can be found in the middle of the homepage of our website, just below the Video section and above the What’s On section.
