Hello everyone. Welcome to the brand new Crawley News website.
It has been a long time in the making but now we are ready to launch what will become the town's number one source of breaking news.
We want to make this a website the town can be proud of. It doesn't matter if you're in Beijing or Brussels, Stuttgart or Sydney, Rochdale or Rio De Janerio - you will be able to find out the very latest news from Crawley at the click of a mouse.
Most of all we want this to be YOUR website. We want to hear your news, we will tell your stories and we will invite your comments on the big issues affecting the town.
We will bring you the breaking news from your neighbourhood, as well as the latest from local schools, The Hawth and Crawley Town FC.
The Crawley News team will also regularly update this blog, giving you the latest from the heart of the newsroom and putting across a few musings about life in Crawley.
Please take a look today and give us your thoughts. If your workplace has a strict internet use policy, what the heck, log on anyway..
As I said, we want this to be a website that Crawley can be truly proud of, but we can only do this with your help.
