Welcome to Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch!
After months of preparation, we’re finally live on the Internet and ready to keep you in the know about what’s going on around Scotch Plains and Fanwood.
My name is Lindsay Wilkes-Edrington, and I’m the local editor of Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch. I’m a South Carolina native, but live near Scotch Plains and Fanwood now and love what this area has to offer. From shopping for good deals at Look Twice, to eating pizza at Alfonso’s practically every Friday night, I’m always finding something new to appreciate about these communities.
I, along with a staff of writers, photographers, and videographers, will constantly be around the two towns covering events and news. We’re committed to keeping you informed, but if you know something we don’t, send me an e-mail at Lindsay@patch.com.
There are a number of exciting features to our site that you should know about.
The first, and most obvious one, is our local news content. Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch will provide you with rich news about these two towns daily, 24/7, so look here for the latest on the town councils, school activities, sports games and more.
Want the latest on the municipal budget? We’ll have the news for you at Patch as soon as it’s announced at the council meeting. Want to read about the neighborhood kids’ sports league? Tune in to Patch for the score.
Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch is about more than just news, though. Our site is also the place to find everything from a new mechanic to a better day care for your kids. We have a rich directory of all the local businesses, services and community organizations, so you can find the information you’re looking for quickly and easily all in one place.
We're also your place for events and announcements, and we encourage you to contribute all that and more to Scotch Plains-Fanwood Patch as much as you can!

You'll find a whole listing of upcoming events on our homepage, so be sure to look it over and add anything you know that's happening that we don't have. And, if you've had someone in your family or friends' circle recently win an award, don't hesitate to let the whole town know in our announcements section!
The great thing about our site is that it's set up to let you contribute quickly and easily. Just click the "add your own" button and you're on your way!
We know these communities are special, and that’s why we’re excited to give you a news source that’s truly your own.
I look forward to working with everyone in Scotch Plains and Fanwood from here on out. Don’t hesitate to contact me at Lindsay@patch.com or 908-380-6210 if something’s on your mind.
Also, don’t be afraid to say hi if you see me around. I’m determined to make Alan M. Augustine Park my unofficial office for the summer, so I won’t be hard to find.
