Who are we?
The Slingsby Website and Newsletter Group originally came together as a group of volunteers in October 2010, in response to community demand. Slingsby residents had expressed the wish (later set forth in the Parish Plan of 2010) that the Parish should have its own community website and newsletter. We were gently sucked into the resulting vacuum!
The Newsletter (subsequently named “The Triangle”) was first issued in December 2010 and the website was launched online on 1st March 2011.
The group (April 2017) consists of:
our founder members:
- Richard Flint (Webmaster)
- Jon Boots, (Website editor)
- Keith Buck (Triangle editor 2010-2015 | advertising, distribution and Yellow Pages manager)
- George Dudzinski (Deputy website editor 2010-2016)
who were subsequently joined by:
- Carol Buck (Treasurer)
- David Thornley (Triangle editor)
- Stephen Mackinder (News and events editor – website)
- Joanna (Triangle editor)
Former members of the group
Naomi was an editor with the Triangle from 2015 – 2017
Geoff Brooks (a founder member) left the group at the end of 2011 but continues to contribute regularly.
Rachel Underwood worked on the website team from July 2012 to April 2013.
What do we do?
We create, maintain, update and manage the website and produce (six times a year) the associated newsletter (“the Triangle”). Our aim is to serve the parish and encourage community activity. We provide a wealth of information about our community, news and events, clubs and societies, history, businesses. We also offer guidance and tourism information for visitors and any interested parties.
We welcome new website content contributions, so if you have something you’d like to see published on the website, send it in to the team. Would you like to join the website team and help run the village website? If so then we’d love to hear from you.
We are constituted as a non-profit-making, unincorporated association. Details of our aims and objectives and how we run our affairs are set out in our Constitution, which was approved at our first AGM in October 2011 [AGM 2011 Annex E] listed with the other PDF documents below.
