The Nextdoor app.
To improve the communication in the parish the council has set up a private social network group using the “Nextdoor” community application.
This should help to get information around the village a great deal quicker.
Joining is quite easy, to date several parishioners have already joined. It will ask for permission to access your contacts, I refused.
This is there as a communication port for the parish, don’t be overzealous with the information you put on it. Have a look at https://nextdoor.co.uk. Any problems or questions contact Selina, who is the lead in this, at Nortoncouncil@gmail.com. Make it work for you and the parish.
