Welcome to Bellmore Patch, the first and last place you'll need to look for information about our hometown!
A daily online local news site, Bellmore Patch will keep our finger on the pulse of the community, 24-7. There are already 30 Patch sites in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, and more are on the way.
Allow me to give you the guided tour, however if you prefer to hear about it, check out my Welcome to Bellmore Patch video.
Our street team hit the pavement for weeks gathering information on local businesses. Hours, contact information and photos are included for every Bellmore store, eatery, repair shop, etc. Our handy mapping feature will even show you how to get there. The Local Facts section will help you find where to turn for resident issues and government contacts.
Our events calendar is chock full of places to see and things to do. From library programs and board meeting notices to support group information and BINGO games, we've got it all. In the Announcements section you'll find all sorts of feel-good news about neighbors' recent accomplishments and life events. We couldn't cover it all without your help of course! So feel free to upload your own events and announcements directly through our site.
We've teamed up with the local police precincts and fire departments to let you know just what's going on in our neighborhood. This will include fires, crime reports, accidents and road closures.
You have an opinion and we want to hear it! Send us your thoughts on the proposed Aqua NY water rate hike or White Castle. Readers will also find columns and useful information from local politicians in this section. Interested in being a regular columnist who can contribute Bellmore-related content? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ah! The driving force behind it all! Our Bellmore Patch staff will be here, there and everywhere in search of local news. We'll be in the audience at school board and civic meetings, on the sidelines at Mepham and Kennedy games, in the crowd at the Bellmore Street Fair and Strawberry Festival and videoing your kid's holiday concerts.
