Welcome to Your Lurgan!
This is a brand new community news website for the Lurgan and Craigavon areas, with a sharp focus on what's happening in your area.
Our mission statement is very simple. We will be working hard to bring you the best in local news and sport. If there's a national issue that affects the area then we will tell you how.
We will celebrate and mourn with you; we will champion and, sometimes, criticise on your behalf.
And we might even take the odd walk down memory lane every now and again!
But most of all, there will be no clickbait. We want to provide a news service you can trust. As a business we are locally owned and operated, plus we have been part of the community in towns and villages across Northern Ireland for over 175 years. With our true understanding of the area, hopefully you'll feel that we are part of your community too.
We'll be bringing you stories with a fresh perspective and a service for the entire community.
As we said on our social media channels prior to our launch – if it matters to you, it matters to us. If there's something that you think we should be covering then please, get in touch with us.
We know how important sport is to the area too. Our aim is to cover sport from all angles and we would urge clubs in the area to get in touch with any pieces of news or reports that you may have.
Getting in touch with us couldn't be simpler. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
We are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok – all you need to do is send us a private message or comment on our posts. We would love it if you could share them too! To find us, just search for Your Lurgan.
I'd also encourage you to get involved with our Coming Out Of COVID survey. Thanks to those who have taken the time to fill it in so far - we've had some great responses which we'll be following up on in due course.
We want to find out how Lurgan is feeling as the pandemic continues. How has it affected your work or schoolwork? What about your mental health and your relationships? Are you concerned about what the future might hold, or are you quite chilled about it all? Perhaps you have some advice for people reading our site? Fill in the survey by clicking here.
Thanks for reading and hopefully we'll hear from you soon!
