1. We are a local news site and proud of it. We have no interest in recycling stories about Good Morning Britain or a murder in Liverpool because it will get a lot of hits through Google. There are other places you can read that coverage. We are focused solely on North Solihull.
2. The site aims to remain balanced and impartial at all times, including in its coverage of political matters. We believe it is the job of a news site to report the facts, present both sides of the argument and let our readers decide.
3. North Solihull is a community full of good people, where a lot of good work is done. We will challenge the negative perceptions of the area and promote success stories. That said, we believe it is important not to gloss over bad news or ignore problems such as crime. Light and shade is key to our content.
Meet the Team:
Get Involved: I am always keen to hear from local residents. If you have a story, complaint or just a suggestion of the sort of thing you'd like to see on this site then please get in touch. I am also open to comment pieces or features relevant to the local area if people want to contact me with their submissions. For younger people who want to pursue a career in journalism or writing generally it could be a good opportunity to put some pieces together for your portfolio.
