Video: How to make the most of Cambridgeshire life through new social network Streetlife
Share information, advice and opinions with your neighbours on streetlife.com – the exciting new social network brought to you by us!
Do you have something to say or ask about your area?
Maybe there’s an issue that concerns or frustrates you, or something you enjoy locally that you’d like to talk about?
We have teamed up with streetlife.com to provide our readers with a simple place to voice opinions and share practical information and advice with people living nearby.
The local social network is a new addition to our websites that connects you with your neighbours so you can swap recommendations, alert people to important news, discuss the things you love about Cambridgeshire, and have a little grumble about those you don’t.
Catherine Gill, Digital Editor of Archant Herts & Cambs explained that it was like chatting over the garden fence but with lots of people, and at times that suited you.
“streetlife.com makes it easy for people who lead busy lifestyles and those who are less mobile to become more involved locally – and better connected neighbours build stronger, safer and friendlier communities,” she said.
