Congleton Nub News is committed to delivering consistently relevant local stories – getting to the nub of the local matter and putting your town in your pocket.
We have established ourselves as your go-to place for informed stories. Our coverage embraces all aspects of our community, from articles showcasing local businesses, the future of the tip and sport, including Congleton Town FC.
This close focus on the town lends us the unique opportunity to give its residents a voice.
Now we want to deepen our relationship with you, our readers, by giving you the opportunity to be the Nub Voice of Congleton.
We are looking for local people who care about Congleton's future and are willing to share their opinions on the local and national issues affecting our town.
If you volunteer to become part of Congleton Nub Voice, you can expect us to contact you every couple of weeks asking your opinion on the burning questions that affect our town.
What do you think of the easing of lockdown restrictions? Are you concerned about Covid variants? And locally, how do you feel about Cheshire East not funding a replacement site for the town's HWRC? How will you be affected when the tip closes in September?
We won’t swamp you with lots of questions - just a single-word yes/no answer to maybe a short sentence.
Your thoughts will be included anonymously in an article offering a snapshot of local points of view.
Whether you are a local business owner, sports club volunteer, photographer, town councillor or just a community-minded resident, we are here to represent you and want to hear from you.
With the help of your input, Congleton Nub News can aspire to be the pulse, the voice and the heart of the community.
In time, we hope that this voice will echo across the country as we strive to make it heard in the corridors of government.
Last year the government launched a ‘levelling up’ taskforce aimed at reducing regional inequalities and reprogramming our London-centric economy and media industry.
We want to contribute to this agenda by giving visibility to voices from beyond the M25 and providing news reports which are not centred on the South East.
We strongly believe that government and power need to hear from towns like Congleton, and with your help, we can show that communities like ours really do matter.
