Students at Whitecliffe Primary will become “community reporters” for Loftus Town Crier covering the Skinningrove and Carlin How areas. Whitecliffe reporters will work in a “virtual news room” to which the public can submit news stories which the team will develop and publish. (people can also submit stories by more traditional means). The stories will initially be published to the Whitecliffe Community Reporters News Site www.loftustowncrier.co.uk/whitecliffe and will then be automatically triggered into the queue for publishing at Loftus Town Crier.
Editor in chIef Mrs Lightwing said, “this is a fantastic opportunity for the children in Whitecliffe Primary School to be involved in. We are very privileged to work with Steve Thompson on this venture.”
