How to Participate

Introduction

The Village web site has 5 main sections:

  • Groups – Areas for specific village organisations to host and post their own information – clubs, societies and businesses etc. Each organisation has their own area with nominated people who can post information on behalf of the group.
  • General News – is made up by contributions from the public on any matter relating to North Luffenham and the surrounding area which are believed to be of interest to the village residents.  Contributions are sent to a small group of website editors to be considered and publish on the website.
  • The Village Wall – this is an area for general “chat” topics, everyone can post a comment here registering with their email address or social media account. You can either start a new topic by posting a comment or reply to a previous comment, All the comments are listed in time order, there is no breakdown into separate areas.
  • Local Ads – Items for Sale, Wanted or available for free.
  • The Corner Shop – This is a directory of local traders.

How do I join in

Groups Postings

For the Group areas related to specific activities, you can send your information to the nominated people who can post on behalf of that group. Each Group page has a contact form to enable you to send information directly to the Group nominated publisher

If you want to publish information yourself for the group, you can contact the lead person for permission via the group contact form, and, after agreeing to the user guide and conditions, you will receive a user name and password for the site to enable you to publish information in the Group area yourself.

Once you have the user name and password, you can follow the posting instructions from here: Village Web Site Posting Guide
