“We have a passion for making life a little easier and we understand the power of websites, social media and being able to connect with the people behind the businesses and within the community – It is available instantly – when YOU actually have the time or need the help and the answers….. We also want to see the hard work of the talented individuals and groups throughout the area to be recognised, experienced and talked about for many years to come…..We now have the technology to make this happen more effectively and on a much wider scale than ever before ”

Via social media, blogging and live streaming we are:


Keeping the Southwell Area on the map, each mention is publicly available, easily searchable and increases the prominence of the area and the chances of its businesses appearing in internet searches.
Supporting businesses
to increase their reach and exposure to a local audience as well as those working in or visiting the area.
Attracting Attention and creating excitement around local events – independent businesses and local discoveries.
Sharing information that helps make the most of the area and encourage a positive, bespoke experience.
Building relationships and encouraging collaboration between local and regional businesses as well as tourism networks.
Encouraging conversations EVERYWHERE so that the unique aspects of businesses and the area are known and the problems are identified and solved.


Collaboration forms part of our core values  – we look for opportunities to work with locals, media, tourism & business networks, event organisers and group co-ordinators. We know that by working to our strengths together we can provide new promotional ideas & opportunities for all.


Our plans for the Southwell Scoop are to help it grow as a community platform and to ensure that it can sustain itself and help the area be at the forefront of online developments.

We would love to hear from you with ideas on how you could be involved or how to evolve the site to meet your needs.

Hope to speak soon…..
