What are Blogs?
"Blogs", or web logs, are simply bits of information written by people who have something to say on a particular topic, and normally where that topic is likely to be updated regularly.
Topics can range from simple diaries, personal soapboxes to public announcements, or where progress on something like a project roll-out is publicised (e.g. the Broadband roll-out in Stanton).
Updates to a blog are called "posts".
In the case of our blogs, we also enable people to comment on posts, our only request being that all posts and comments are objective and not offensive (i.e. criticise the idea, not the person). For most of our blogs you will need to sign-in to the website before you can leave a comment.
Can I Contribute?
If you would like to create and post to a blog on a new topic, or be able to share posts to an existing blog, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stanton Blogs are a noticeboard for anyone in the village to share information that they think may be relevant to others.
Anyone with an account on this website can post anything they want to in the "Village - General" blog, for example: updates on water leaks, recommend a tradesman, or help needed. The list is endless.
There are also other blogs on specific topics, which have dedicated author(s).
Here is a list of all recent posts:
Water Supply - Update - bottled water
Saturday 16th 3.20pm
STW have parked a mobile water bowser at the junction of the High Street and Stanway Road next to The Court's entrance, where you may fill containers with drinking water. It is not likely to be there for very long so act quickly.
(18.30: now gone!)
Saturday 16th 3.00pm
Work is continuing to re-charge the reservoir and slow but steady progress is being made. There may be water now available at the bottom of the village (can someone confirm this?) but it will be a slow process to refill up to the level of the higher premises again.
I have scrounged 18 bottles of water, which are available on the front garden wall of my house (The Jesters in the High Street, just past Burland Hall on the opposite side of the road) and these are available to anyone who needs them.
We are trying to get more bottles dropped off later (probably by the village cross next to Church Lane) - more info if/when it happens.
