THANK YOU for looking in on www.yourharlow.com.
Welcome to www.yourharlow.com
We launch today (July 1st), having won a national award by the Carnegie Trust in their Neighbourhood News competition.
This is a quiet start. So we do ask that you be a little patient with us!
Our sister paper, www.yourthurrock.com, launched five years ago. In the early days, we just produced four stories a day, slowly building up our stories and our contacts and our on-line presence.
In 2012, YT gained over one million page views and now has 4,800 followers on twitter. We now publish 3,000 stories a year in Thurrock and aim to reach such heights in Harlow.
We also film a lot of our news. YT has filmed over 4,800 news items in nearly five years.
YourHarlow is based in Harlow and run by Harlow journalists. We are here to celebrate all that is good about Harlow but also question where necessary and then let you decide.
But we cannot do it without you! So, if you have a story, please let us know: e-mail: [email protected] or tel: 07757167689.
Thanks. As we said, this will be a quiet start, we will build up and hope to be a paper you can be proud of.
