Why ?

We live in a global world, but one which still revolves around things local

Most publishing models still rely heavily on advertising

Not only is Ourlocality locally-based but its advert-free

More’s the point we don’t use personal information for marketing

Who ?

It could be you

Ourlocality is everyone, and anyone with an East Lothian connection

Individuals, community groups, small businesses, community councils and much much more

In fact anyone with a legitimate connection with the county can claim a site and start publishing within minutes

How ?

We use a popular opensource software platform, based on WordPress, with lots of security built-in

We foster an environment that encourages free thinking, debate and communication

We want local democracy to flourish and provide people a platform for any cause, however small

If you are enjoying the free version feel free to donate
