At Patch, we are community journalism for the 21st century, posting information online around the clock and making it easy for all to contribute. I rely on a team of writers to provide news, features and opinion pieces, which will be added multiple times per day.
I'll be at your town council meetings, school committee meetings and providing breaking news from the police and fire departments. We'll be on the sidelines of Tiverton Tigers games, and your youth and adult recreation leagues. We'll be covering all major and seasonal events in Tiverton and Little Compton. We'll take the time to update you on hot-button issues, and tell that unique story of the person, business or setting that has impacted the lives of the residents.
At Patch, we'll be providing news stories in various media platforms, in type, photos and video. We'll also be posting periodical website updates on Facebook (you can "like" us there) and Twitter (@TivertonPatch).
