Weekly Edition - 6 March 2015




Southport locals strengthen community with social media

THE fastest growing British social network, Street Life aims to build stronger communities across the nation and has been described as "the online equivalent of chatting over the garden fence."  Streetlife users sign up with an email address and post code and are instantly connected to all other users within their local area; no friends lists or followers are involved. This gives users a way to share practical advice and information to an audience within the local community.  To date, conversations on the site have seen locals come together to turn disused back gardens into community allotments, raise awareness about missing cats and spread the word about doorstep scammers. "The display of community spirit we've seen has been fantastic. It's obvious that there's a real desire among many neighbours in Southport to help one another and we're delighted to provide an outlet for that" said Nina Whittaker, Streetlife's Head of Communities. Southport residents can find out more and connect with their local community at:-
