Welcome to the first edition of our Daily E-zine.
I am Gary and I would like to introduce you to our new daily e-zine. We don't know where this journey will take us but please come along for the ride.
This is an experiment and I am sure there will be plenty of chopping and changing along the way until we find something that works for the majority. We know we can't please everyone but if we can please the majority we are happy.
We also want you, the readers, to be involved in everything we do. So, if you feel you have something to offer, please don't be shy - get in touch. What would you like adding?
Please let us know when we get something right by liking and sharing on social media and also tell us when we are getting things wrong. We really do appreciate any feedback so that we can carry on learning.
We all hope you enjoy this journey
Very Best Regards

On this day in history

Today's feature focus is on North Bridge
North Bridge, Halifax is a Victorian iron and stone bridge at Halifax, West Yorkshire, in northern England. It crosses the valley of the River Hebble, connecting the town to roads to Bradford and Leeds. Replacing an earlier six arch stone bridge it was raised to allow the subsequent construction of the Halifax High Level Railway under it with an adjoining station. Opened in 1871 amid chaotic crowd scenes it carried increasingly heavy traffic until it was by-passed by the Burdock Way in 1973. It remains in use for local traffic. wikipedia

View the Halifaxpeople.com Calendar where you can view pages as they are being built. Every day has a feature focus which might be the preference for any potential advertisers eg. if there is a focus on Hipperholme next Thursday, that day might be ideal for your advert to appear. This might also be a readers specialist subject for them to enter an article.

This website has always been my hobby and if it can have a purpose, all the better.
Tell me what you would like the pages to include, better still, include your own input.
There is a 'What's On' page on this website and any events will be included on the 'Daily' pages too.
Whilst we do have a small charge for advertising, this is mainly to cover the costs of the website host fees.
What else should we include? Let us know
