Welcome to goinlocal.co.uk
Goinlocal is a new website that tells you everything you may want to know about your local area whilst at the same time letting you quickly reach the wider world via a built in browser and other links to popular sites. So make this your homepage, a meaningful gateway to the internet, and go in local.
Goinlocal is not a newspaper - it is an on-line reference guide for your postal district - a kind of Library, Yellow Pages and Local Information Centre all rolled into one. Within these pages you will find all sorts of useful and interesting information such as local clubs and societies, sports facilities, local bus and train timetables, how to contact your local councilor or MP, - charities, churches, schools, medical centres etc. There's even an local map, some very useful local telephone numbers and a business section. Need a plumber, a TV. man, a home help, roof work, accountant or a taxi? - look at Home Services. If you want a local take away or to eat out - check out the Food and Drink section. You will also find links to other websites, local, national and international. We have designed this website to be simple to understand and easy to use. We have deliberately not included a lot a flashing lights, moving logo's and complicated navigation. Some of you may be whiz on the computer, but most people aren't and it is important that as many people as possible feel comfortable using this design.
Everyone - this website is designed and maintained by local people. It is interactive, use it to post free classified ads or report the local sports results, if a restaurant meal was particularly good or the local builder did a first rate job, share it with us. We all want to know who we can rely on locally to do a good job.
Local businesses - have you spent a fortune on a website that nobody knows about or can ever find? Link it to this community website. Are you running a special offer but worry you can’t tell everybody? Advertise it on goinlocal so that we can all see what you have to offer.
Finally, we hope you will understand that this website is just a baby which will develop, improve and 'fill out' over time. We shall be constantly updating the information, adding interesting new items and improving the content. Please add your support by using the website. The small businesses that are listed or have taken pages or adverts are local and deserve your support. These are all friendly, helpful people who have joined this website to give you a greater depth of information about themselves so that you will feel more confident contacting them.
