We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our contributors, advertisers and every one of our readers a very merry Christmas, and a peaceful and prosperous New Year! 

Thank you all for another wonderful year and for maintaining your loyalty to Local Community Matters; making us Tameside’s most popular free to access, daily up-dated, community news site.

We have always believed it’s the good news and success stories that emanate from within our great communities that makes us so special and sets us aside from the rest, so we really wanted to wish everyone out there all the joy, peace, great memories and a successful New Year.

To date we’ve been read by over 500,000 total visitors, so it’s been quite a busy year for us, consequently we’ll be taking things a little bit easier over the next few days, but don’t worry, we’re already planning for 2018 which is on-target to being our biggest year since we took our local community news project online.

We’d also like to say a special festive thank you to everyone who supports the site. Our team of regular reporters, people who send us their community stories, users who spread the word and of course everyone who uses the site.

In the coming year we look forward to reaching and publishing many more ‘successful milestones’ with you.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

From all at Local Community Matters
