The Argus website features a dedicated community pages section that is home to correspondents at the heart of our communities. This space provides a platform for promoting events and activities in your area and an opportunity for fair representation.
On The Argus community pages you can find news reports, reviews and updates, community photo albums and historical timelines, all of which are waiting for your contribution.
By becoming a community correspondent, you can upload news and information directly to The Argus website. You can publicise events at your local school, community centre, church or club. You may want to write a review on the latest drama society production, give details of a village fete or report from a residents’ association meet-up.
It is a fantastic way to reach wider readership and raise the profile of community concerns. With the thousands of people who look at our website everyday, you can propel your community news to regional and city-wide status.
To be a correspondent all you need is a computer with internet access. All individuals, nonprofit making organisations in the area, including schools, charities, youth clubs, sports clubs, village committees, churches and religious groups, residents’ groups and housing associations, are eligible to sign up. Correspondents can add what’s on information, reports of events and live links to other sites of interest.
We host the pages and correspondents provide the content. The more people who take part, the better the pages will be.
The best stories may also be published in The Argus.
The web pages will be at theargus.co.uk/communities.
