What is In Common?

In Common is a news and features site for and about the local community in and around Southampton and  the rest of Hampshire. We are mostly volunteers, and want to help people get to know each other and what’s going on in their local area, to build ties and make connections. We are local people writing about the area where we live, because we care about it.
