Ten Years of Talk
Denton Talk is now ten years old.
It all started on 31st May 2010 when 31 local residents signed up to join the scheme.
Ten years, and who knows how many messages, later - there are currently 223 members.
Most people would agree that it has, in the main, provided a very useful service for the local community, particularly in the current emergency situation. From lost (and found) dogs to information about coming events it has helped us in so many ways. OK, it has perhaps been misused at times but, in spite of this, very few people have asked to be removed from the system.
In so many ways it has shown what a great community we all live in.
Here's to the next ten years!
Thanks to Matt Squirrell, we have discovered that Talk actually started in March 2009 as part of the work on our entry for the Calor Village of the Year Competition.
So Talk is really eleven years old!
