A good local community website is a valuable resource to villages and towns that want to share important information and hyperlocal news with fellow residents. Some people think of their local community website a bit like an online noticeboard, but village websites can be so much more, and have the ability to enhance the community spirit of your local area.
Charity fundraisers, petitions, walking clubs, you name it, you can tell everyone about it on your community website. Never will you ever miss out on attending the pub's beer festival, be unprepared for the local fireworks display or forget you to exchange your book at the mobile library.
When are the bins next being collected? What happened to the injured swan from the local pond? Who will repair all the potholes? All this and more could be answered in your local news section of your community website, and anyone can contribute content.
There will be many residents with a tale or two to tell about the history of a place and just require platform to keep this knowledge alive. Dust off the black and white photos and teach the next generation about what life in the area used to be like.
A chatroom provides an opportunity for villagers to comment on news articles, ask questions and connect with each other.
Poetry, photography and paintings from in and around the local area. If your village has got it, then why not flaunt it?
An easy local selling tool with no fees, no faff and no Facebook login required.
