Pam and Odilia recently met with Malcolm Blatchford and his colleague Amanda from Neighbours’ News which is a community newsletter covering areas in and around the Black Country.
As you may remember we were planning a newsletter for Stourbridge to publicise local positive and community news. Hearing that Neighbours’ News also plan to do the same (and already have a wealth of experience) we have decided to work together with them rather than reinvent the wheel.
So the plan is that we will feed into their publication and be part of the editorial meetings, sending in articles from projects that we run or hear of in the area.
It is clear that a lot of hard work and commitment goes into producing Neighbours’ News, which for the past eight years has been run on a voluntary basis by Malcolm and Amanda. We are looking forward to getting involved and contributing to the Stourbridge issues in the near future.
