Useful neighbourhood Apps
We would also like to bring to your attention some “Apps” which may be useful for you.
1 – NEXTDOOR
There is an ‘App’ called “NEXTDOOR” which is for ‘neighbours’ in your area as defined in your settings. The website is https://askew.nextdoor.co.uk/.
“NEXTDOOR is the private social network for you, your neighbours and your community. It’s the easiest way for you and your neighbours to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it’s free.
NEXTDOOR’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world”.
People are using NEXTDOOR, for example, to:
Borrow a ladder, organise a Neighbourhood Watch Group, track down a trustworthy babysitter, find out who does the best paint job in town or ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog.
Specifically in the Askew Ward recently there have been notices of items being offered for sale (hamster cage, etc.), the Christmas comes to Starch Green notice, Yoga classes, piano teaching, flats for rent, etc.
2 – “LOVE CLEAN STREETS” [also “H&F REPORT IT”]
This App enables you to report items of concern to the Council and is easy to use and effective ….
Once set up click on “Begin”, Click on the map to show where is the problem, take a photo of the problem and give a description, add hashtag and category and then “Send”.
