Community champions

Known as ‘The People’s paper’ and prioritising news for the community as well as a pledge to be socially conscious, the EWN posts regular Facebook, Twitter and Instagram updates to make sure that its readership receives all of the latest updates that they need and that they feel represented by their weekly news source.

The distinguishing characteristic that sets us apart from other publications is our commitment to serving the informational needs of our communities, defined by the community’s members and a shared sense of belonging. Thousands of readers pick up a copy of the EWN each week to find out about news and events happening in their area, local businesses and the services they provide, charities such as the British Benevolent Fund and those who provide funds to people in need, and animal shelters including APAA, ACE, Donkey Dreamland and Tail Torrox.

Supporting charities, organisations and the British expat community is at the very heart of the EWN, including events run by the British Consulate and CUDECA and is well-known for raising much-needed funds, hosting important charity events, in addition to publicising and promoting campaigns.

All of this comes at no cost to our readers, and all of our print and online content always has been and always will be free of charge.


Reporting and covering local and national news has seen the Euro Weekly News win multiple awards, including Best Free Newspaper of the Year (Premios AEEPP), Company of the Year (Costa del Sol Business Awards) and Collaboration with Foreigners honours (Mijas Council).
