We want to hear from you

If you have any comments or questions about any of the stories and articles on this website, any suggestions for future features or if you have any expertise on any of the subjects covered and would like to contribute an article about that subject, please contact us at:


We find ourselves in Uncharted Waters, so We Want to be here for you.


In these unprecedented times, it is more important that ever to feel connected.

While we can't physically keep in contact with people we need to make the most of the various media and methods of communication.

Every day we are bombarded with information about coronavirus and its effect on our lives; our community; our world.

What we would like to offer here is an oasis where we can all connect and look a little more on the bright side of life.

To that end, if any of you have amusing anecdotes, ways to relieve the boredom or just encouraging words, we would like to hear from you.

Please do contact us on the email address at the top of this column or our main email address at the top of the page. We would love for you to participate.

Due to the obvious restrictions our magazine may not be available for a few months, so we will try to keep you entertained and informed on this website. Please keep checking back as we put new features on.

We'll maybe even throw in a competition or two. We know that you like entering them.


Peter Jones: webmaster and editorial.

Julie Comes on Board

Accrington's own Julie Hesmonhalgh has agreed to write an occasional column for us. As you will know, Julie is a very successful actor and has a busy schedule, so we are very grateful that she has found time to do this column.

Please enjoy reading her article, which I am sure will strike a chord with many, in the strange world we all find ourselves in. Julie has even sent a poem which she wrote about home-schooling and is definitely very apt at this time.

We at Acorn, have been asking Julie to do this for some time, but work and other committments have made that difficult for her until now, so we are delighted to publish what we hope is the first of many columns in the future and we wish her every success in her flourishing career. She is a wonderful ambassador for our town.
