A weblog for Brookmans Park

Welcome to the Brookmans Park Community weblog, yet another way for local residents to express themselves.

The Brookmans Park Community Forum, is still the place
for discussions about issues local to Brookmans Park and the parish of North Mymms, however the weblog offers the opportunity for discussions on wider issues, such as general current affairs, charitable campaigns, politics, religion, arts, culture, sport, in fact anything that interests locals, but might not be local.

Contributions made to the weblog might, occasionally, be considered for publication as a story or feature on the front page of the Brookmans Park Newsletter. You never know, it might get picked up by the local press or a specialist magazine. It’s happened before and it could happen again.

Authors can also upload pictures to illustrate their work. The weblog has a facility for browsing to pictures on your computer and publishing them as part of your post.

If you want to be registered so that you can start posting on this weblog, please message me through the Brookmans Park Newsletter Forum and I will register you with the same email address as you use on the forum.

Do we have to post under our forum IDs?

Is this just a plan to keep all the religion & politics off the other site?

I think we should be told!

I hope this isn't going to be too tricky for non tech savvy people to use..... I have a few reservations..

Hi Paul,

It might be too tricky. I have attempted to explain how it works in the forum thread.

Also, it might not be what people want. If that's the case, no harm done. It's just another option. If there is no demand or interest we can remove it.

In answer to heavy green ink, you have to be registered by one of the admin teams to post a fresh item. Once you are registered you can use whatever ID you want.

Let us know if you want to be a registered member in order to post.

You can comment on any item if you have a blogger registration.

In answer to ADM the answer is yes. The post (above) explains ...

"The Brookmans Park Community Forum, is still the place for discussions about issues local to Brookmans Park and the parish of North Mymms, however the weblog offers the opportunity for discussions on wider issues, such as general current affairs, charitable campaigns, politics, religion, arts, culture, sport, in fact anything that interests locals, but might not be local."

Of course, where politics and religion are directly related to local issues then the forum is the right place.
