Coming Soon! Branford Patch Hits Refresh

Next month we'll unveil a new look for Patch that helps you live better in Branford.

About two years ago, we launched Branford Patch with a pretty bold mission in mind: To make your life ridiculously easy.

That meant covering the biggest stories in town—from the unveiling of the new Fire Department Headquarters to the two storms, Sandy and Irene, which wrecked havoc on our shoreline town—while also helping you share even the smallest feats like the news of the upcoming Soup Stroll or communicate with your customers. 

At every turn we thought of new and better ways to deliver on our promise, which is why we’re so excited to premiere an improved Branford Patch next month.

Come mid-December you’ll be able to:

  • Personalize Branford Patch by following groups. A few clicks makes your local news feed custom-fit to the topics you care about. Police blotter and shelter pets? Taxes and restaurant reviews? Why not?
  • Better organize your day by creating groups of your own. Use Patch to plan a rec sports league or school fundraiser. Everyone can finally be on the same page—literally.  
  • Experience a better mobile Patch. We know you live on your smartphone—so we put everything you love about Patch in a smaller, more portable package.
  • Share comments and photos more intuitively and much, much faster. 
  • Turn any blog or opinion piece into a mini-community of interest, complete with followers of your very own. 

For a sneak peek, check out Long Beach (NY) Patch and let us know what you think. You can also ask any questions—large or small—by emailing Senior Regional Editor Elissa Bass at elissa@patch.com.

You can also register your interest in forming a group right when the new Branford Patch launches here. We'll walk you through it!

I started following the Branford Patch to get Branford news. It's been disappointing to find vitriolic blogs from other "Patches" featured on the main page.

Hi Bill. Patch really appreciates your feedback. The new site will eliminate those blogs from your view if you so chose. The way the new Patch looks is going to be totally up to you. Here's a peek at Patch 2.0 in Long Island: http://longbeach.patch.com/ If you get some time and can browse that site and offer some feedback, I would really appreciate it! Thanks for your readership, and of course, your opinion! ~nicole
