Essex County Council’s ‘Keep me Posted’ service has received its 140,000th sign up this week.
The news and information service, which allows people to sign up for free email news alerts and newsletters on topics of interest to them, has been running for just under a year.
Cllr David Finch, Leader of Essex County Council, said: “With less money available we need to look at more innovative ways of keeping our residents informed.
“The Keep Me Posted service allows for residents to sign up for useful news and information which is specifically of interest to them, whether that be areas such as schools, jobs opportunities, highways, or events and activities happening across the county.
“I am delighted this service is proving so popular and I would urge anyone who interested in finding out more to visit essex.gov.uk and register.”
