As a quick follow-up to the 'Begin Again' post below we would like to mention that we are always looking for material for the site - our content management system allows you to upload your own material directly to the site's editors. You can upload articles, photos and of course you can post shorter contributions here on the board.
Each day we feature a photo that links to an article or a photo gallery that has been contributed by a local contributor. These are archived for the past 10 years or so.
All work on the site is done on a voluntary basis and unfortunately we cannot afford to pay you for your contributions - but on the other hand we don't charge for genuine contributions that are of local interest.
The main page is updated continuously as new articles are published at the top the older ones are shoved down the main page much as any newspaper site. All articles are archived, however, as a record of events in the town. The site is still very active with 2.7 million hits in November last, so it's a good place to put your message across - especially if you are a local club or community group. Each article and post here also has a Facebook 'like' link at the bottom and links to the main front page articles are also posted on Facebook and Twitter.
All contributions to the site are on a voluntary basis as has been the case for many years - the hosting and bandwidth charges are partly at least covered by a small amount of advertising - thus we cannot afford to pay for contributions but neither do we charge for articles that are of genuine local interest.
