Belfast Telegraph’s roadshow starts today, and we want your input
The Belfast Telegraph Tell Us About It Roadshow will roll into Ballymoney today to kick start one of the most interactive community newspaper campaigns ever staged across Northern Ireland.
Our reporters Lesley-Anne Henry and Claire McNeilly will be out and about on the Main Street from 1pm to meet people going about their business and to find out what you think we should be making our business.
The reporters will be wearing Belfast Telegraph branded T-shirts and may stop you in the street to ask for your views on the stories you’d like to see covered.
Throughout its 140-year history, the Belfast Telegraph has prided itself on covering local news as well as national and international stories.
Our Tell Us About It Roadshow aims to get in touch with readers and non-readers to ensure we are providing a comprehensive news agenda.
If you’re not free during the day to meet the reporters, you will have a chance to air your views at a public meeting at Ballymoney Town Hall at 7pm.
The next roadshow is on September 23 when the team visits Co Armagh to hear the views of residents in Lurgan.
