JILL DANDO NEWS IS BORN

Local, UK and world newspaper, the Good News Post was born in 2017.

Positive students got together in Jill Dando’s old school, Worle Community School Academy, to remedy the situation of endless bad news.

It was less than a mile from the childhood home of BBC TV star Jill Dando who was murdered in 1999.

The Good News Post began to capture local, UK and world news, and reporters for Jill Dando News were trained up.

They had three aims…

✔️ Turn bad news into happy, positive good news.

✔️ Become life-long journalists of good news.

✔️ Put a smile on the face of journalism – Jill Dando style.

A new way of doing news… positive… focussed on cheering people up.

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 dozens of young reporters across Somerset and 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.
