Your local, daily
News Platform Dedicated To The Shotley Peninsula
For all your news, sport and features in and around the Shotley Peninsula
There are so many things happening on the Shotley Peninsula but keeping up with everything can be a challenge.
It is with this in mind that the Shotley Peninsula News and Features website has been launched as a catch all for everything going on in this beautiful corner of Suffolk.
We plan to bring you the very latest on all issues which affect us on the natural triangle set between the rivers Orwell and Stour and the A137.
This includes house building, which quite often is not part of any strategic long term thinking. For example, a planning application in Brantham or Shotley will have an effect on both villages, as well as everyone in-between given the infrastructure, or perhaps lack of it.
It is a similar situation with businesses, in whatever field, which could mean more jobs, better services and facilities, or have unintended consequences.
Although many more people are making their homes on the peninsula and want to know what is around, there are many others who have lived here for generations and like to be informed with facts when something good, or bad happens to people they may have a link with.
Tourism is a positive benefit to the whole peninsula, walks, trails and river trips all attract locals and visitors alike, so promoting the area in positive manner whenever possible is vital to the economy.
Spending the Peninsula Pound is something we will be encouraging residents and visitors alike to be doing - Buy Local, use the services and tradespeople on the peninsula.
Whatever the story, or picture, we will publish with Honesty, Transparency and Integrity and we welcome your contributions to this service aimed at benefiting the larger peninsula community.
