The world has changed a bit since the original village website was set up in 2010.
Social media growth has changed the way information is received and shared for many people. Alongside that, legislative changes around transparency and accessibility have set standards that public bodies such as the Parish Council, must follow in their online presence.
I’ll be leaving the village on 23rd March, but not giving up as webmaster yet, so members of the Parish Council and other interested parties have started to think about how and if the website might change.
To make sure that residents’ views are considered, you have the opportunity to give us your thoughts on any changes you would like to see in the comments section below, and we will look at feasibility.
In the meantime, is there anyone out there who would consider taking on the role of webmaster to administer the site in the future? Experience of WordPress would be great, but good computer literacy and a thirst for new knowledge is all I had when I took the site on in 2015.
It isn’t a particularly onerous role because the reality is that we’re a fairly sleepy village, not a dynamic metropolis where there’s something happening every day. I’ll still be around online to help learn the ropes if needed.
