NEW DEVELOPMENT - JULY 2021
KDBH cOMMUNITY GROUPS LISTING and events CALENDAR
Supporting Our Community Organisations and Promoting Local Events
Few other Neighbourhoods can boast such a rich and diverse community life that generates activities and events enough to fill three village/community halls and many other local venues!
We want to help promote wider community awareness of, and support for, our local clubs and the work they do in the service of our community - particularly as they start to get up and running again after the challenges of Covid. One way we can do this is by using the Forum's technology and communications infrastructure and skills to:
create a community groups listing that brings together in one place summary details of KDBH clubs, with quick and easy links to more information. Those using the listing can search to find groups by their chosen category / area of interest.
provide an on-line ‘Events Calendar’ where groups can quickly and easily publicise and promote their events and the community can access up-to-date information in one place.
Huge thanks to all the clubs who kindly offered their support to help us develop and trial a pilot of the two systems and associated processes. It is their details that are included in this first release, with, at this stage, just a few example events as clubs start thinking about if and how they may choose to 'open up' again post Covid. We very much look forward to growing the number of clubs and events over the coming weeks.
How Do I Take Part?
Any KDBH community organisation can take advantage of these new ways to increase their profile and publicise their events on-line. To take part, you simply need to register with the Forum Here and pay an annual £10 subscription via our donations page Here - there is no other charge.
To join our Community Groups Listing: please download this form to provide us with some short details about your group. Once completed, email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will add the details into the Listing and email you a picture of what it looks like for your final approval.
To add an Event: For first-time users, please email us at email@example.com with details of your event, including, most importantly, a good quality, eye-catching image. We will add the event into the calendar and then chat this through with you to: a) check the entry is correct; and b) also offer some short training that will enable one of your group members to input the details directly.
For subsequent event entries, submitting information is easy to do by clicking on the green 'Submit Event' button at the top of the Calendar.
For entries submitted via the green button, we then check that your data is showing correctly (we will help correct, if necessary) and simply 'approve' the entry for publication. Once you've done a couple and are familiar with how to input the data, this then puts YOU in control and enables a very fast turnaround - in contrast with the minimum 3 weeks notice typically required for traditional print advertising cycles!
