Open News

On Tuesday lunchtimes, Tortoise journalists have a weekly news meeting to chew over the live news agenda. It’s a meeting that’s open to our members – a chance for you to have your say and propose angles that we, and others, are missing. If you have an idea for a story that hasn’t got the attention it deserves, this is the time to pitch it. Bring your own lunch and come and help us make the news.

Following Johnson’s announcement of a third national lockdown, our first open news meeting of 2021 investigated the effect of children missing yet more school, the prospect of the Olympics going ahead this summer and the progress of the vaccination program.
