Have some questions? Take a look at our Frequently Asked Questions for quick answers.

What is Zip06?

Zip06 is the digital news division of Shore Publishing covering the towns along the CT shoreline between New Haven and the Connecticut River. It is a community news platform that aims to not only provide up to the minute local news and information but also provides a platform for community engagement where registered users can share opinions, photos and information with their neighbors. Join in the conversation!

Are you connected to my weekly newspaper: the East Haven Courier, the North Haven Courier, The Sound, The Source, Harbor News, or the Valley Courier?

Yes! The newspaper that arrives free each Thursday in your mailbox is created by the same staff that runs Zip06!

Do you publish the Shore Line Times?

No. The Shore Line Times is published by the New Haven Register. You can contact them at 203-789-5200.

Will you publish my stories, photos, or events?

Yes! Registered members of the Zip06 community can contribute stories, photos, and events.

If I submit through Zip06 will my story, photo, or event be printed in my local newspaper?

Not yet! We're still working on making this happen. For now, if you want something to appear both online and in print you should submit to the website and also email news@shorepublishing.com

What is 'News From You'?

'News From You' is exactly what it sounds like: It's news from you!

This is the special place on Zip06 where all of the news submitted by members of the community winds up. Do you have an article you want to publish? Are you getting married? Did your child make the honor roll? Those are all examples of news from you!

Do I need to create an account?

No. Creating an account with Zip06 is completely optional. You can read all of our stories, browse calendar items, watch videos, and browse photos without ever creating an account.

-John Hammond - Collomore Concert

Music

Chester Meeting House
4 Liberty Street, Chester, CT,

From the Blues Hall of Fame to the historic Chester Meetinghouse comes John Hammond, a legend in the world of acoustic blues guitar. His concert is sponsored by the Collomore Music Series in its 39th season. Hammond has been likened by critics to Robert Johnson, combining powerful guitar and harmonica playing with expressive vocals. Tom Waits describes "John's sound as so compelling, complete, and soulful it is impossible to imagine improving on it. He's a great force of nature." A seven-times Grammy nominee, Hammond was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011. The concert is likely to be a sellou; don't delay! All ticket-holders are invited to stay for a reception after the concert to meet him. Chester Meetinghouse is located on 4
