Welcome to North Kingstown Patch

A warm hello from the new site for all things North Kingstown.

Welcome to North Kingstown Patch!

I'm Samantha Turner, editor of North Kingstown Patch. I've called this town home for nearly 20 years and am so excited to be joining the Patch community and to do so in my hometown.

Patch is series of hyperlocal news and information sites, spread out across the country. From school committee meetings to festivals in town to the opening of a new business and everything in between, Patch will be there ready to report.

We all have busy schedules and Patch is here to help make it easier for locals to stay updated on events around town.

Check out the video to the right to learn more about North Kingstown Patch.

Here's an overview of what you'll find on our website:

The Directory 

Our listings include profiles on everything North Kingstown, from churches to parks to schools to restaurants, etc. We also include maps and photos of most businesses in our listings section. 

Events and Announcements

Our events calendar will be your source for everything that is happening in the town of North Kingstown. It'll include everything from club meetings to recreation events and programs, and so much more. Our events team does a great job,  but we can always use your help, so feel free to upload events to North Kingstown Patch.  Our announcements section is a great way for you to share important accomplishments or life events with your community.  Did your child get a school award or get engaged? Did you just get promoted? Do you want to thank a neighbor for helping in a time of need? Post it on our announcements page and let everyone celebrate the good news.


Our news section will feature stories about topics such as politics, schools, sports and business. My reporters and I will be all over North Kingstown, learning the news, covering events and getting to know the community. We plan to tell these stories in printed form and using multimedia, so photos and videos will accompany much of the content you see on our site.

We want the North Kingstown community to be a part of making our site even better.  We want to help local organizations by  publicizing their news and helping them recruit volunteers, which can be done through our site's volunteer section. Upload events and announcements, tell us about community groups you're involved in and, as always, feel free to send us news tips and story ideas. We're also looking for local writers, videographers and columnists, so email me at samantha.turner@patch.com if you want to contribute.

I look forward to covering North Kingstown and meeting everyone in the community.

Welcome to North Kingstown Patch!
