YourHarlow: 8000 stories and rising!

News / Thu 4th May 2017 at 12:29pm


A QUICK note to say that we have just published our 8000th story. YH has been running since July 1st, 2013.

We were started through a grant by the Carnegie Trust that asked a simple question: “Do you know an area that doesn’t get enough news?”

So we looked out of our office window in Harlow and said: “Possibly”

We had been running YourThurrock since September 2008 and Harlow was, for a number of reasons, an obvious next step.

Both on line newspapers are essentially run by one person. But in Harlow it is run with the co-operation of its 80,000 residents.

We won’t stay on the high moral ground too long but suffice to say that we will commit to trying to bring you Harlow news 24/7.

And when we say Harlow news, that means committing to a balance of good news, bad news, scrutiny and celebration.

We average over 50 stories a week. We would love to do more but there are only so many hours in a day (In Thurrock it is an average of 75).

Oh, and you can find all 8000 stories here, all carefully archived….

There are still many many organisations that we would love to hear from.
