Your Editor

Gemma profile pictureLowton & Golborne News is edited by me – Gemma Melling. I’m a former journalist and now a digital content specialist, as well as being a mum of three girls. My husband Tony runs a small local business, too.

I’ve lived in Lowton, then Golborne for 20 years altogether, it’s where my husband grew up and where we chose to raise our children. I love this area and I enjoy playing my small part to help it thrive.

Our sister site: Newton-le-Willows News

You may also be interested in our sister site, Newton-le-Willows News. Our towns are so close together and lots of us in Lowton and Golborne enjoy eating in Newton and using some of the small businesses and independent outlets there, too.  By bringing our areas together on this site (you’ll find businesses from Newton, Culcheth and Croft in our Local Directory as well as those from Lowton & Golborne), we all benefit.

At the end of each of our articles, you’ve got the chance to comment and share your views. We love to get your feedback and also suggestions if there’s anything you think we should be writing about.
