Big Local

Now things are finally happening with Big Local might it be a good idea to have a new section in CO for Big Local discussions?  Their website is calling for comments to CO.

Or

Maybe we want to see it all integrated with general chat about the villages?

It was always the plan to have a specific section for Big Local, when we put in a bid with Lucid Creations to create the Big Local website.

 

However we didn't really ever get much in terms of feedback or communication with the old coordinator.  I guess a lot of it was due to the fact that although things were happening behind the scenes at Big Local not much was required to be public domain.  Now things are moving or at least appear to be maybe its time to readdress the Big Local section.

 

What do you think Big Local ?

Big Local is keen to make it as easy as possible for people to find out about Big Local news and to get in touch with us.  Having a separate section on CO would certainly increase the visibility of Big Local on here.

 

To keep you up to date on our timelines, we are looking to get our plan submitted in the next month, and hopefully approved by the end of September - ready to launch asap after that.  Some elements, such as the Community chest that we have announced, will go live earlier than that so any channels that we can use to get our message out there and encourage people to come forward and apply for funding can only be positive from a Big Local perspective.

We will just need to coordinate at some point so go through your requirements and how to link with the Big Local site.

I think we all need to be aware that Lee pays for the site out of his own pocket, (server, domain, licenses)  and also spends time making sure no nasty stuff gets onto the site.  We all appreciate what he does as a valuable service to the villages but business advertising on the site doesn't go near what it costs).  It looks like a professionally run thing from an organisation, but there is no financial or other support.  It's won prizes too!
