Reading-North Reading Patch is Coming on Wednesday
A site dedicated to both communities is launching on Wednesday.
You’ve been telling us you’d like more coverage of Reading – and we’ve heard you. We're happy to announce that we're harnessing our resources to more effectively cover both communities – introducing Reading-North Reading Patch!
It makes more sense to our readers and our local small business owners to offer coverage that extends to Reading, doesn't it? The business community is more than North Reading – in fact, the local chamber of commerce covers both towns.
Much of the information we are offering on this site is of interest to residents of both communities; having it all in one place will make it easier for you to keep up with all the goings-on, without flipping back and forth between sites!
Here are some of the exciting benefits this will bring to both communities:
- All of the businesses will be part of our extensive community directory, called Patch Places. Business owners will continue to be invited to claim their listing – and readers will have a comprehensive resource for finding every business in North Reading and Reading.
- We already are covering North Reading breaking news, schools, real estate and business – but now you’ll get to find out what is happening just down Route 28 in Reading. This will allow us to expand coverage and invite Reading residents to add their own voices to the discussion through Letters to the Editor, Announcements, Events, Blogs and photos in our Neighborhood Gallery.
- We’ll bring you news about the business community, spotlight homes for sale, tell you about the best eateries, and inform you about events so you can plan your weekend.
It’s not just the word “Reading” that is common to both towns. Residents from both towns frequent the same parks, restaurants and businesses.
Residents from each community enjoy a walk at Ipswich River Park or staying fit at Burbank YMCA. They check out books at Reading Public Library or Flint Memorial Library. They enjoy dinner at the Horseshoe Grille or Harrows and grab lunch at Bagel World or the Lobster Claw.
Reading and North Reading are two communities, but there is much they share.
We're excited about being able to provide better coverage of the things that matter to residents of both communities - which is always something we’re striving to do! But as always, if you think we're missing anything, let us know.
