Welcome to the Westford Template!


Hello, my name is Andrew Sylvia, I served as local editor for the Westford Patch from May 2011 to January 2014 and the Chelmsford Patch from August 2012 until January 2014.

In the ten years before then (and in the few months since), I’ve had bylines for over a dozen newspapers, radio stations and magazines throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire and that one time in Vermont.

Today I welcome you to the Westford Template, a news website dedicated to news in Westford as well as information and events relating to Westford and Westford residents.

We’ll publish our first “official” story on May 14, the first day of the Apple Blossom Festival.

However, please stay tuned for updates before then, and keep on checking back in! The site will be a work in progress for the first few weeks, and we’ll need your help!

In the meantime, check us out on Facebook (facebook.com/westfordtemplate) and Twitter (twitter.com/Westfordnews)
