A regional daily has marked the New Year by launching a campaign to celebrate good news stories.
The Argus in Brighton has launched its That’s Good News campaign in the newspaper, on its website and across all social media platforms.
It says it will guarantee “positive news” in the south coast paper every day and measure confidence across Sussex by giving readers and online users the opportunity to share their success-stories.
Readers will also be able to get involved by contributing to the Good News Barometer on the The Argus website, which will measure how optimistic people are feeling about the coming year.
The Newsquest title has also launched the #thatsgoodnews hashtag on Twitter which will highlight the good news across the city.
The Argus editor Michael Beard said: “All the economic indicators point to a recovery gathering speed as we enter the New Year.
“Brighton and Hove was built for good times and we want to help business owners spread the word about their good news.
“We are asking readers get in touch to tell us their good news.”
