Welcome to Thornaby.net
Thornaby has, in the past, had a number of website initiatives. All of which have failed at the first hurdle.
Commercial interests, ulterior motives and just plain misguided intentions have plotted to disgrace a number of these attempts.
In reality and with the right skills, it costs very little to set up and run a successful website. We have the skills and what's more we have a proven track record in providing local, useful, no nonsense community based websites in this area.
Our aim is simply to make ourselves redundant. We will never hide that fact. If we can cover the costs of owning the site through advertising that will suffice.
We will be actively fostering relationships within the area to bring you the type of content we feel you want to see. Our views on what is important will change as you contribute to the site but we will remain dedicated to offering useful and relevant content to the residents of Thornaby.
What we're driving at here is that this is a community site and it is your community site. You can dictate the direction of the site and you can contribute to the content of the site.
We will censor nothing but the obscene. We allow you a forum for your concerns, wants and needs.
The site is split into a number of areas, each of which you can add to.
The forum - to discuss any matter you wish
The chat room - to chat in real time
selfServe - to add to many of the website areas i.e. What's On, Local News
Classifieds... - to sell those things gathering dust in the garage/loft
Most of these need no explanation suffice to say that you can add to almost every page on this site and in doing so will dictate the direction and usefulness of the site.
WE NEED YOU!
We need people to submit local news, we need people to tell us more than we already know about Thornabys history, we need people to tell us what matters to them. We are ideally placed to offer a means to establish and publish support for your campaign, to hold and publish details of your meetings or to simply advertise your activities.
This really is your site, the first site to allow you to speak freely without commercial constraint or political pressure.
