A Community Website in Action
Hello to all our sponsors, ‘friends’ and website followers, occasional and regular.
As another year of website activity draws to a close the Website Committee took the opportunity to look back over a very busy year. While the wider world was coming to terms with Brexit, Trump, massacres and momentous trips on the Space Station, the website kept its focus firmly on life in and around Geddington.
Firstly a big thank you to all our loyal sponsors and those of you who have sent in news, made the news or reported on the news – no ‘fake news’ here!
We hope you enjoy the run of photo images attached to this post and that they bring back happy memories for most of you and remind us that we live in a very caring, fun loving and active community in which we can all play our part. With around 56,000 hits last year we know that many of you use the website as a reference point, a source of news and information and a way of keeping in touch if you are now living further away.
We need your help to make it even better.The website committee is keen to encourage a few more village residents to join the team, feeding news, information and archive material into our records.
Are you interested in local history? Could you do some research for us? Or write an article?
Are you a keen photographer? Could you take photographs at village events? Or edit some of our archive material?
Do you attend meetings of a village organisation? Could you keep the website up to date with your news?
Do you live in an area of the village that is under represented in our news? Make your voice heard!
We’d really like to hear from you and discuss how we can put your talents to good use, making the website as relevant and far reaching as possible.
The good news? We don’t hold lots of meetings; we are very informal; we share ideas (and we have some good ones!) and, more importantly, the workload, and it is very rewarding to see our efforts on the web!
Do join us! Get in touch using the Contact Us facility on the website or ring Pam or Janet on 742292 or 726416 to find out more.
We look forward to hearing from you and to continuing to provide the best service possible to the village.
Tony Locock, Pam Hopkins, Janet Jones and Ricardo Insua Cao – Your website committee.
