Saddleworth hyperlocal site launches

I came across a great new hyperlocal venture in the North West yesterday.

Saddleworth News has been launched by Richard Jones covering a much neglected but exciting and vibrant area of the region.

Richard explains the concept on his site

This is a new website giving news and information about Saddleworth and the surrounding area. It’s for people who live in Saddleworth as well as those who like to visit. To use a trendy piece of jargon, it’s a ‘hyperlocal’ website, which basically means it contains information about what’s going on in a particular local area. Sites like this one are starting all around the UK, as local people fill the void left by cutbacks and closures in the traditional media.
