I have recently taken on the role of Village Web Site Administrator. The job consists of keeping the Blog up-to-date and reviewing the information pages. I have been looking through the previous editions, and I must say that thanks go to Val Taylor-Rowe for doing a great job. She will be a tough act to follow, but I will do my best.
For those of you who are not familiar with blogs, I’ll explain. These are snippets of information, thoughts, or items of pure entertainment. Blogs are supposed to be short and to the point whilst giving the reader the opportunity to contribute.
As you can tell from my writing style I am more a functionary than a journalist, or entertainer, so I am looking to my dear readers to provide these snippets.
I would like these blogs to have the content and tone of someone chatting in a café, pub or chatting to neighbours over the garden fence. So, that will give you an idea of the sort of thing I am after. Of course, the usual caveats apply, it must to positive, informative, interesting or simply fun.
Do you have a family member who has done something you are proud of?
Have you won the lottery? (Don’t tell the Village Hall fund-raisers – Oh go on, let them have a few quid).
Has someone helped you and you wish to thank them publicly?
You are new to the area, and wish to know what is going on?
Do you have any special ideas?
Do you run a club that needs promoting?
Is there a special event you wish to let us know about; births, death and marriages, though not necessarily in that order.
You can write to me using the contact page of the website. Send in your snippet via the email form, or leave your contact details. If you don’t wish to write the content of the blog yourself why not get a friend to do it, or even me. I could come around for a chat and we can work out what to write, together.
