Welcome to the Newtownards Chronicle Online

Welcome to the new website of the Newtownards Chronicle! The Chronicle has been bringing news and views to the local communities of the Borough of Ards in Northern Ireland since 1873. We've been with you through all the good times and the bad, the happy and the sad. We've advised you, laughed with you, cheered you on and we've been there when you needed a helping hand. The Chronicle is for the people of Ards and, ultimately, by the people of Ards.

Times are changing though. From being your main source of news and information, 24/7 satellite news and the internet has meant that we've had to look again at how we can bring our valued audiences the support and interest that you now need. Our weekly newspaper will proudly continue but will now be joined by a range of digital publications, including this website, email and the main social media channels including Facebook and Twitter.

But more than that, we're going to evolve what we do to be better at what we've always done - to provide you, the residents of Ards, with a stage, a megaphone, a gallery - in short we're going to try to help give you the voice to say whatever you want within your community. We're going to help you make a difference...

Welcome to the new Newtownards Chronicle online. Your community, your voice, your local audience!
