Macclesfield Nub News is dedicated to producing consistent and relevant Macclesfield stories – getting to the nub of the local issues and putting our town in your pocket.
And we are ready to take that one step further, with your help...
Since April 2020 and hundreds of quality pieces, we have established ourselves as the go-to place for informed Macclesfield articles.
Our content embraces all key aspects of our Macclesfield community, from articles celebrating small business success, and profiling our town's market heritage.
This close focus on our town give us a unique opportunity to give its residents a voice.
With over 8,000 weekly readers, we now want to hear from you, and hear your thoughts on the key issues affecting our town, and possibly impact policy.
We are looking for local people who care about Macclesfield's future and are willing to share their opinions on the local and national issues affecting Macc.
If you volunteer to become part of Macclesfield Nub Voice, you can expect us to contact you every couple of weeks asking your opinion on the burning questions that affect our town.
We are giving you the opportunity to be the Nub Voice of Macclesfield.
Questions can range from the handling of the pandemic, to the recovery of our high street.
It could tackle a controversial topic of the week, or even ask you how you think we should honour Macclesfield's silk history.
There will be rotation of infrequent surveys, but we won't badger you with spam emails. Your voice will be heard, and inform our quality, ad-free and independent journalism.
And the best part? Everything you write will be anonymous, and can be said in confidence.
Nub Voice will also help us to create statistics on key topics in our town, to help digest and tell the rest of the town the nitty gritty on the stories that matter.
We won’t swamp you with lots of questions; just a couple of prompts requiring anything from a single-word yes/no answer, to maybe a short sentence or two.
