About Nextdoor. ‘Nextdoor’ is a sort of interactive village noticeboard. Nearly 70% of households in Hough on the Hill Parish (inc. Brandon and Gelston) are members. It’s very simple to use and is used for announcements about blocked roads, missing pets, suspect people, recomendations for tradesmen, sales, wants etc. It’s not very busy but if a post is important or urgent someone may answer straight away as everyone in the local group is sent an email (this can be changed to a text message, or turned off). You can send a message just to the Parish, or include nearby villages too. Click here to join.
