Greetings from The Seeker,

This is Shaun, back with your midweek briefing. School maybe out for summer this week, but you'll find no end of term blues here.

We had a fantastic response to my Wednesday Window idea.

👏 So please give a welcome to this week's featured artist - Pinch, who specialises in the unique beauty of cityscapes, from bustling streets to historic buildings.

Help us shape The Seeker

We are almost at 700 sign-ups to The Seeker since we returned and while it's been great to see so many of you joining us we're by no means the finished article (pun intended).

To succeed we need to discover more about what you want and need from us.

  • So, tell me what you like, and what you don’t like – and what the value is you are looking to get from us.
  • What do you make of our new editions - too many stories, too few, too long, too short?
  • What stories would you really like to see covered? (this is my 🎯 as I see The Seeker as a collaboration with you)

We want to create a sustainable model for independent journalism in Norwich - but we can only do that with you.

📩 So don't hold back, email me above with your thoughts or post a comment on this newsletter.

Ok let's get started!
