Share information, advice and opinions with your neighbours on streetlife.com – the exciting new social network brought to you by the Eastern Daily Press.

How Streetlife works

Go to streetlife.com and sign up with your postcode and email address. Then streetlife.com automatically links you to the conversations and people where you live.

You can post messages, events, polls and pictures, and everyone locally will be able to see and respond. You can then also help out your neighbours by sharing your knowledge and experience of the area.

Do you have something to say or ask about your area?

Maybe there’s an issue that concerns or frustrates you, or something you enjoy locally that you’d like to talk about?

The Eastern Daily Press has teamed up with streetlife.com to provide our readers with a simple place to voice opinions and share practical information and advice with people living nearby.

The local social network is a new addition to our websites that connects you with your neighbours so you can swap recommendations, alert people to important news, discuss the things you love about Norfolk, and have a little grumble about those you don’t.

Peter Waters, editor of the EDP, explained that it was like chatting over the garden fence but with lots of people, and at times that suited you.

“streetlife.com makes it easy for people who lead busy lifestyles and those who are less mobile to become more involved locally – and better connected neighbours build stronger, safer and friendlier communities,” he said.

Richard Avery, digital director of the EDP’s parent company, Archant Anglia, is excited about seeing readers engaging online.

“By pooling their knowledge and experience on streetlife.com, the people of Norfolk will create a really useful and unique source of local intelligence and support, and that’s why we’re encouraging everyone to get involved and spread the word.”

Not only will your conversations be seen on streetlife.com, they’ll also be displayed on our website, edp24.co.uk, and we’ll be featuring conversations and trending topics in the Eastern Daily Press.

- Go to streetlife.com and sign up with your postcode and email address. It’s free and easy, and you’ll automatically be linked to the people and conversations where you live. You can post messages, events, polls and pictures, and locals will be able to respond. And you can help out your neighbours by sharing your knowledge, opinions and advice about the area.
