On Chandler’s Ford Today, we pride ourselves on creating value-added posts to you.
In the past year, we have a strong team of 50 local writers, authors, and contributors.
If you wrote one post in the past year, thank you for a great start.
If you wrote 20, 30, 50 posts, thank you for your perseverance, and the challenge that you set yourself. (Your productivity also proves my occasional nagging works.)
You’ll have noticed this site is organic: our posts, written by writers with different perspectives, are linked.
One idea bounced off another; one post triggered another. We work as a team and make this site a highly recommended site by Eastleigh Borough Council.
