Would you like to be a community reporter?

Do you love living in your local area?  Are you passionate about the local news and events that happen in your community? 

We are currently looking for a team of community reporters in the Salisbury, South West Wiltshire and Southern Wiltshire community areas and if the answer is yes to the above, please get in touch!

Community reporting is a fun way to share good news stories about your life and all the positive activities that are happening in the wider community using words, pictures, video or audio! It is easy to learn and you will be supported every step of the way. You will meet up regularly with other reporters to plan campaigns and share ideas for future stories.

This may involve attending local events, interviewing people in your local area and reviewing and providing recommendations for local shows and activities.

You might be a job seeker, you might be newly retired, on your gap year or you might simply have a few hours on your hands. If so, we will provide you with training and the equipment you need to become one of Wiltshire’s first wave of volunteer community reporters.

Your mission (should you choose to accept it) will be to seek out interesting news, attend events and activities, talk to participants, record them on video and post your stories online, on this site – where thousands of people will view your work. And soon, we hope to offer incentives to include local discounts and time credits for each post you make – that means you will receive vouchers you can use at many local attractions.
