Welcome to Heswall Today.

Heswall Today is a brand new local news service for people who live in Heswall and surrounding areas.

It is edited by Mark Gorton and part of a growing network of ‘hyperlocal’ news websites.


Mark is a television producer, journalist and writer who has spent all of his professional life living in the Heswall area.

His hope is to deliver an informative, stimulating and entertaining service, and create a space where people can talk about the serious and not so serious issues that touch local lives. Heswall Today is news for the mobile age, but you can also access it on your desktop, tablet or smart TV.

Says Mark, “We hope everyone checks in regularly to see what we are up to. We can’t guarantee that every day we’ll have something for everyone, but we’ll do our best. We also need our readers’ help, so if anyone has a story or wants to suggest topics that should be aired or delved into, then please get in touch by using the form below or through our Facebook page.

“We also need local businesses to advertise with us, and it’s our job to provide news and information that attracts attention. If you want to advertise with Heswall Today, or just want to know more, please make contact. We can send you a rate card, or talk through the options on the phone or face to face.”
