Website aims to create stronger communities

llanblogger reader Mike Edwards is amongst the first Llan residents to join a new website which aims to create stronger communities.

Here he explains how it works.

NextDoor has evolved from a website called Street Life and is an application for smartphones to encourage stronger Community ties as follows:

Its a private social network for you, your neighbours, and your community.
Nextdoor’s mission is to provide a trusted platform where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world. And it's free.
People are using Nextdoor to:
  • Borrow a ladder for example 
  • Organise a Neighbourhood Watch Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job for example in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a pet
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bike or similar
  • Finally call that nice person down the street by their first name
 
In many ways, Nextdoor and Streetlife are very similar. Both are neighbourhood platforms, whose goal is to connect neighbours and build stronger communities.
However, there are a few small differences that you should be aware of:

It can be downloaded on the App Store or Google Play.
