A news revolution born out of the tragic murder of Jill Dando

Jill Dando was the Golden Girl of TV

Your Good News newspaper was founded in 2016. It was the idea of children from Priory Community School Academy. They had been writing positive stories in 2011, a 10 minute walk from the childhood home of BBC journalist legend Jill Dando in Worle near Weston super Mare, Somerset.

The Post was born as a place to ‘Post’ all their positive stories up.

Their sister school Worle Community School Academy, where Jill started her journalism aged 13, set up the first Jill Dando News Centre shortly after. There are now 11 centres and over 100 reporters.

The smiling face of Britain

Jill Dando was murdered in London in 1999 at the peak of her powers, becoming the best TV journalist in the land. Not only that, but she ran her life and work with kindness, compassion, and a smile.

But her memory is very much alive with scores of reporters young and old across Britain writing stories for The Post, with Jill as their inspiration.

She was the smiling face of Britain. Now more than ever, the world needs that smile.
