At no expense, and only about 6 months late, the first email newsletter for Haughton West residents was sent out yesterday.
David, Andy and myself want to keep local residents updated about things that are going on around Darlington in general, and Haughton West in particular.
The newsletter won't be particularly political, but will focus on practical things like forthcoming events and issues where local people may want to have their say. It's being sent to residents who at some point have shared their email address with us.
If you live in the ward and would like to receive a copy (they will coming out fortnightly, on average) then email me at email@example.com.
At the moment, the newsletter is going to about 40 residents - I'd like to think that I've got that number up to 100 by Christmas.
