WELCOME to the Stratton section of Your Neighbourhood, an exciting new initiative which we hope will give folk an even greater voice and profile.

In March I attended a public meeting along with some of the Adver website team to promote Your Neighbourhood and it was encouraging to receive such a strong and positive response from the local community.

There is only a finite amount of news and information we can publish each day in the Adver, so here's your opportunity to shape the news for your community.

If you have just stumbled upon this page and want to get involved then we would be delighted to hear from you. Contact Gill Harris or Stephanie Tye at webteam@swindonadvertiser.co.uk or by phone on 01793 501795.

In the meantime, this is the first of a number of community websites we are setting up around Swindon - there will be one coming to a district near you soon.
