Happy New Year Beckenham & beyond!
I trust you all have had a great Christmas and wish you all a wonderfully happy, healthy and successful New Year.
Thanks for making the BeckenhamTown.us website buzz in 2011 and even win an award! ‘Beckenham’s Best Community Project’. I certainly hope you will all continue to use it regularly and participate as much as possible in 2012 making it an even more busy, larger and invaluable resource to everyone of all ages locally.
Over the past 12 months the website and @Beckenham twitter feed has helped thousands of locals with up-to-the-minute travel news, commuters battling through snow, train and road delays, lost cats and dogs, promoting local businesses and start-ups, charities, events, allaying fears and running a commentary on the factual local news over 72 hours of the summer riots, answering hundreds of questions including how to run a street party, finding lost people, reporting local crime within minutes and hopefully contributing to the apprehension of the perpetrators, saving wonderful local artisan establishments, bringing together lost friends, promoting artists and singers and the list goes on and on...
I might be the one controlling the flow, keeping everything current and working sweetly, but it’s all of you who supply the news, support, donations, interaction etc and for that I’m extremely thankful. But even more it shows that local spirit and neighbourly friendship isn’t a myth. I’ve got to know around 3000 of you via Twitter and the website, some better than others, but all of you have helped make this the pre-eminent South London online community, so why not let’s go for being the Capital’s No.1 local digital neighbourhood community in 2012 and so please do recommend and cajole your friends to join and follow. Keep spreading the word.
Thanks again for a sparkling 2011, and here’s to a very busy and fun filled Olympic, Diamond Jubilee, street partying, big neighbourly social New Year!
