New Editor Needed

As many of you will probably have seen on this website, Randall Hardy, after many years almost single-handedly creating and maintaining the site, is stepping down in the coming months.

The Parish Council is therefore looking for someone who would be willing to take forward the role of editor for this excellent Parish resource. The website publicises news stories and events affecting the Parish, as well details of local groups and their activities. It also informs residents of the activities of the Parish Council and provides access to fascinating pieces of local history.

Whilst Randall has combined the roles of technical development and reporting, the Parish Council has secured the services of a local person to carry out some technical developments, which will help the website be more accessible on mobile phones and tablets.

That leaves us with the very important role of editor. The Parish Clerk does some of the updating, but the ‘social’ and general information aspects of the website need an editor to gather and add the necessary information, currently using the WordPress platform (being familiar with WordPress would help but it’s certainly not essential!).

The website also contains a large repository of historical and photographic information.

If this is something where you feel you could make a contribution, keeping an important source of news and information available to the people of Hodnet and its vicinity, and would like to know more about the current arrangements, contact the Parish Clerk, Ian Cruise-Taylor – email or 07866 494411.
