Church Ward Councillor Ashley Pearce has recently joined the local website street life as another way to keep up with local people. The website allows local people to post issues, start conversations, ask questions and post events about what is happening in the local community. There is also a classified section and a lost & found. You are also able to get daily or weekly updates about what the issues are that are concerning locals.
