The City of Newcastle has announced a pilot scheme that will see “local people” and bloggers set up blogs that “give a voice to Newcastle’s residents and citizens in a new digital space”.
Key points:The initiative will run from next month and will cover Newcastle, Maroochydore, North Tyneside, Newcastle Central and Newcastle North-EastCommunity groups, like the Newcastle City Council, are also encouraged to contribute to the projectThe project will help boost Newcastle’s tourism industry by giving residents an avenue to share their experiences and share their storiesCommunity groups and the Newcastle Community Alliance have already been invited to help to set the blog up.
“This will be a way for Newcastle’s resident and community to share and communicate with each other, so that we can all contribute to our community,” Newcastle Mayor Michael Duggan said.
“The aim is to encourage Newcastle residents and visitors to get involved and share information, experiences and ideas.”
The initiative is being launched with the aim of boosting tourism and tourism industry activity in the region, with the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Newcastle Chamber and Newcastle City Councillor John Williams, a member of the Newcastle-based Newcastle City Chamber, already involved in the initiative.
“We want to create a platform that will be used by all Newcastle residents,” he said.
The website will include information on local events and events in Newcastle, such as a “local news week” and “local business week”.
“The Newcastle City council is very keen to partner with bloggers in the hope that they can bring local people and residents together to share what is happening in their area,” Mr Duggan explained.
“So, we want to bring them together, but also get them talking about things that they’re passionate about.”
A new, local website, ‘The Newcastle Life’, will also be launched to help guide the city council in creating the site.
“Our aim is for the blog to be a tool to give people the opportunity to interact with one another, and to allow people to share stories and events,” he explained.
The Newcastle Mayor also said the blog would help in the city’s ongoing efforts to increase tourism and economic activity.
“For example, we’re already seeing the impact of tourism in Newcastle.
We’re working with the local Chamber of Trade, and Newcastle Chamber has also been working with our Tourism Council, and they’re all looking to see what they can do,” he added.”
They’re looking to promote Newcastle tourism as much as possible.””
This is the first step towards being able to support our local businesses and businesses and our tourism industry, which is what we all want, so we’re really excited about this.”
I think this will be an incredibly important opportunity for Newcastle to see the positive impact tourism can have in Newcastle.
