About Us

The Life In Another Town blog is published by Matthew J Wright.

A portfolio of original content: video diaries, video news ,news photography and travel videosI write the articles*, take the photos*, do the interviews, film the videos, tweet the posts and publish the blog.  However, none of this would be possible without the support of my wife, Heather: my sometimes willing accomplice and more often press ganged gorgeous assistant.
*Unless stated otherwise

Life In Another Town publishes community news, stories, photos, videos and interviews from around the Ormskirk area in West Lancashire and MerseysideI also post, when the opportunity arises, video diaries , travel videos and interviews recorded during our holidays to foreign shores.

My wife and I live in Ormskirk, West Lancashire, England.  I am currently studying for a degree in Modern Languages with the Open University and my wife is studying for a Doctorate and works for the Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust

Although my wife and her parents have been resident here for many years, I'm a relative newcomer.

However, after living here for a few years or so, I do feel fortunate to be a part of the vibrant community of West Lancashire.

I have witnessed the effort that many residents put into supporting their local voluntary and charitable groups, community celebrations and commemorations, as well as their participation in the numerous church and faith activities going on every day, each week, throughout the year.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph, video and report on some of these events.

While travelling abroad I take the opportunity to photograph and video community news events and activities taking place in our midst.  From right on the frontline during a general strike in Barcelona, to street protests by young unemployed Tunisians on the edges of the Sahara Desert, we video and interview people with an interesting viewpoint.
