Describe a piece of local news that people are interested in
- You should say
- What was it about?
- Where did you see/heard it?
- Who was involved?
- And explain why people were interested in it?
Well, people are very interested in keeping themselves up to date with their locality as well as with their outer world. They get the news about their surroundings from the local newspaper as well as from the internet. Still, I think newspaper play a predominant role in making people aware of their locality.
So, here I would like to speak about constructing a kitty party club for the women and getting to know about the refurbishment of a kitty party club in my locality when I was enjoying a cup of Joe while reading a newspaper. It was written in bold letters, and I was surprised as well as happy due to this news. Local authorities and the charity organisation of my town were involved in constructing it.
Actually, people were very happy because they wanted to have such a society where women must be treated equally. The women of my town remain busy doing domestic chores as well as doing jobs. So they don’t get time for making themselves rejuvenate.
Therefore I think this was the reason that there was happiness all around as people of my town, especially males, were delighted because they are more liberal in their thinking and my town is not a male-dominated society, so they understand that there must be a place for the lady, who takes care of all the family members and has a great hand in making the members of a family unite.
So this place can provide the women of my town a chance to organise parties as well as play games and relieve their stress.
