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 Group was founded by Jon Boots, Keith Buck, George Dudzinski and Richard Flint.
The Newsletter (subsequently named “The Triangle”) was first issued in December 2010 and the website was launched online on 1st March 2011.
Following our 2017 AGM in November, the group consists of:
- Jon Boots, (Website editor, Chairman/Secretary)
- Sarah Bowley (Treasurer)
- Jo Bradley (Triangle co-editor)
- Jo Breckon (Advertising and distribution)
- Richard Flint (Webmaster)
- David Thornley (Triangle co-editor)
- Dave Wilmore (Website’s news editor)

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.
