Have your say

It is all about you.

That is the aim of the many improvements and changes we are introducing to The Star but what does it really mean?

Well our aim is to make your local newspaper represent your views, your life and your neighbourhood more than ever.

We want you to open up The Star and find news stories relevant to your family, features about issues which impact on your life and, of course, sports coverage of your favourite team.

Now we’d like to think we are already pretty good at that but as we all know there is always room for improvement.

And that is where you, our readers, come in.

We want The Star to be all about you – but we need your help to do that.

We are gradually getting a trickle of ideas from readers but I want to increase that to a stream as strong as the River Don.

So who can you help?

As I have previously mentioned we are making room in The Star for more of your celebrations.

We want photos of your good news.

Just passed your driving test – email me a photo.

Graduated with honours – tweet me.

Raised £25 with a school cake sale – share the news.

Weddings, engagements, birthdays, parties, exam results, fundraising events – if you think it is worth celebrating then we think it is worth letting everyone know.

If you watched last week’s video interview with Women’s Editor Jo Davison you will already know that she is working on some great new features for our exciting new lifestyle supplement.

And there are lots of chances for you to get involved and get your friends, family and colleagues joining in too.

Jo wants to create a pull-out which acts like a supportive, chatty, tell-it-like-it-is New Best Friend to women of all ages and backgrounds across the city.

Jo is looking for women to take part in monthly fashion shoots, the theme of which will be Age Is Just A Number.

So if you would like to be one of the models, or you run a fashion business and would like to do the re-styling, get in touch and send Jo some photos.

There are so many women across South Yorkshire with interesting lives and views we want to write about as many as possible.

If you aren’t sure about being in the spotlight yourself, why not recommend a friend or relative who will tell it like it is.

And we couldn’t start a new supplement without talking about food!

It seems like the whole country is gripped by cupcake fever but do you have a favourite recipe or top tips to share?

We want to get South Yorkshire people cooking with help from you. Try one of our recipes at home and show us – in pictures or a short video clip – your own version the following week.

Maybe you want help from our new problem page or are will to tell us the best five things you bought this week.

Tell us your best beauty buy – and the one they would never buy again – and why.

However you want to get involved, just do it!

You can email Jo at jo,davison@thestar.co.uk or write to her at Jo Davison, The Star, York Street, Sheffield, S1 1PU.

We all know somebody who is a star so let’s read all about it in your local newspaper.
