Tomorrow afternoon William will be presenting at the Connecting Stafford event at the Postgraduate centre at Stafford Hospital, Weston Road Stafford from 3pm. William will be talking about creating easy and effective local websites, and ways of using these to help the community through the challenging times in store for Stafford and pretty much everywhere else in the UK:
Over the next few years Stafford is going to be suffering real problems. We know that there will be a lot of redundancies, and a lot of cuts in public services. We will need to find ways of creating new opportunities for ourselves. By connecting online we can get through this. An active Hyperlocal site will give us some of the tools we need to do this.
[Diana Smith, Stafford Direct]
After William’s presentation he, Mike and myself will be remaining to help deliver a social media surgery that goes on until 7pm, so if you’re in the area and would like some advice on using the web to communicate, connect and organise, then please come along and say hello! You can find further details on the Stafford Direct website.
