Sign up for Rother District Council emails

Rother residents are being urged to sign up for email alerts offering news and information about their area.

People can sign up on the Rother District Council website for My Alerts, a weekly email service which includes updates tailored to their property and their surrounding area.

Updates include reminders of bin collection dates, details of planning applications and information on local events.

Recipients receive one email a week, while the system also allows people to be contacted if there is urgent information to be communicated.

Malcolm Johnston, RDC executive director of resources, said: “There is a wealth of information available on our website but signing up to My Alerts is a great way for people to ensure they’re kept up-to-date with the latest news and information.

“Residents who sign up will receive one handy, weekly email containing any information relevant to them about what’s happening in their area.”

Some residents who have contacted the council via email previously are already signed up to receive My Alerts. To sign up, visit www.rother.gov.uk/MyAlerts
