Welcome to Askew Locals.
Before you hit your back button, please allow us a moment to welcome you to a local website about Askew locals put together by some Askew locals. With a hop, skip and jump into the unknown, not to mention a wince or two of puckering trepidation, we’d like to say to those of you we’ve never met, “hello neighbour.”
Our mission is to tell you something about the villagers who’ve been walking past your stoop for years but you’re now too embarrassed to do more than nod and smile because you don’t know their names. Well, guess what, you all have something in common: they don’t know your name either.
So, we’ll name names. But, we won’t name and shame. Like the sticky slice of heaven that is Askew Village, we won’t be nasty. Nor gossipy. Okay, a bit gossipy, if you think sharing someone’s surname is gossip. We hope to tell you just enough to get you all talking. And we promise: no hacking.
We’ll feature the locals behind local places, whether they be the local butcher, baker or candlestick maker.
As well as these local institutions, we’ll tell you a little more about local characters – maybe even you if you fancy fifteen minutes of limelight.
If there’s anyone in particular you want to meet, please email us via the Contact form.
Please do get in touch because, as you’re about to discover, we can’t do this on our own.
With thanks and best wishes from,
Some of your neighbours.
