The Village website is a place for community groups to post contact and other details about their group.
Darlington is a vibrant community with seemingly as many committees and groups as it has residents.
Local groups – members of the Darlington Review can have their own page where they can provide an outline of their group, and useful information about AGMs, committee meetings, membership etc.
The website is sponsored by the Darlington Review, but maintained externally by a community member.
It is not a place to advertise businesses – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to advertise.
Let us know what you think, send us your ideas, help us to make the Darlington Village website ever more meaningful and useful.
