Northamptonshire ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) are the organisation running the Community Web Site program that we are part of. Last night they ran a session to allow those involved to meet up and hear how the project is going. June Irani and John Williams went along to Hunsbury Centre for the meeting.
The evening was attended by nearly 40 people from all over the county. We did wonder if there was going to be enough room but everyone managed to get a seat. Elaine O’Leary from ACRE managed the evening and was kept busy meeting, greeting and introducing the various speakers. Steve McCarthy – who developed the Rothersthorpe site – introduced the session with a history of the project and the progress to date. There were presentations on work done by Walgrave, Wilby and Milton Malsor and we got some ideas on things we might do to further develop this site. (Your suggestions very much welcomed too!)
There was also an update on the county-wide web site competition that we have entered.
