We are reaching the end of the first national wave of talk about local training with UK online centres and some amazing websites have emerged, such as Moretonhampstead Hub, Heeley Online, Doddington’s Doings and This is Penhill.
I’ll be writing more about these exciting new community sites later, but in the meantime we’re keen to offer these new publishers the benefit all that hyperlocal experience out there, so we’ve arranged a series of webinar sessions with community website managers who’ve created popular and vibrant hyperlocal websites, giving attendees the chance to hear their stories and ask questions. Slots for these webinars are:
- Fri 9 Jul – 2.00-3.00pm: Chat with Dave Harte from Bournville Village
- Mon 12 July – 3.00-4.00pm: Chat with Tony Walley from Pits n Pots
- Thurs 22 July – 11.00am-12.00pm: Chat Annette Albert from W14 & SW6 London
- Thurs 29 July – 11.00am-12.00pm: Chat with Philip John from The Lichfield Blog
We’d like to open these webinars out to those who might not be part of the talk about local project training, but interested in hearing from these community website managers all the same. We’ll be offering 10 places per session to external attendees on a first come, first served basis. If you’d like to take part, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and email address, indicating which session you’d like to attend. We’ll reply with full details on how to register.
