New community news service to inform local residents
People in the Staffordshire city of Lichfield are to be kept more informed of decisions and events affecting their lives from 2021. Lichfield District Council is launching a brand new email newsletter in the New Year with the aim of ensuring that local residents never miss out on council news. In addition, a community magazine, also entitled LDC News, is being sent to homes right across the district. The local authority is now encouraging its residents to sign up to receive the new monthly e-newsletter in time for the first issue in January. The digital version of the magazine will feature a roundup of council news, services, events and promotions.
Councillor Ashley Yeates, the council's Cabinet Member for Community Engagement, said: "From activities and events in our parks and streets, to the not so exciting but very important changes to bin collections and community consultations, our monthly e-newsletter will help communities to keep up to date with what we are doing. LDC News will feature bite-sized stories every month as well as links to campaigns we are running, such as 'Save time, get online', which encourages everyone to interact with us through our handy online forms. It will be an easy way to stay on top of council news, and we hope all of our local residents, businesses, groups and stakeholders sign up to receive it and also join in by sending us your stories."
