Use TownWatcher as you would any search engine - just type in some words or a phrase that you are interested in,
and it'll find the documents that are most relevant.
Here are some tips to help improve your search results.
- If you search on a phrase such as council newsletter, the search results
will include any documents where the word council is close to the word
newsletter. For example, a document containing the sentence "A newsletter
was sent by the council" would be returned.
- If you want to search for documents with a specific phrase, and not just documents
where the words are near each other, put quotes around the phrase. Searching
for "council newsletter" will return only documents that contain that precise
- You can always use the Filter Results function at the top of your search results
to restrict the search to specific municipalities and sources.
