OTS News is pleased to announce the creation of our new forum, and we’re looking for testers to help develop this section of the site.

Forums have played a major part in Southport’s local news websites for nearly 20 years and we feel that a well-moderated, active community can only be good for Southport.

We are now seeking signups and contributors to steer the development of the forum. All users who register for the forum and make a post during the month of August will go into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.

Readers can access the forum on our navigation menu or by visiting otsnews.co.uk/forum
