How to Help

 

There are lots of ways to help, in ways both big and small, one-off and ongoing. If you would like to chat about anything, Peter is usually to be found in Chatters in Needingworth Village Hall on Thursday afternoons (1.30-3.30) helping people with their computer issues, as well as chatting about family history and local history. Otherwise .

Click on each to see what it contains, and click on the toggle again to close it up.

Provide Information

I would love to hear anything you have about the village, its people, or things that have happened. Do you have childhood memories, or stories that have been handed down in your family? Can you correct, or add to, any of the facts that you can find here? Can you point me towards any other websites, books or publications that might be of interest?
You can do this by making a comment on one of the posts or pages you find in the website, or make a suggestion about one of the people or families under the People section.

Provide Pictures or Documents

Photographs are of particular interest, especially (but not just) if you are happy for them to appear on this website. I am also interested to see copies of house deeds, maps, letters, family trees, stories, etc.

Give Permission

I want to be careful about publishing things only when I know I have permission. This is why we have a specific privacy policy, and try to abide by it. If you are able to give permission for things to to be published, or if you are happy for your own details to appear among the people of the website, that would be appreciated (I can show you what would appear if you gave permission). Of course, on the other side, if there is something on the website that you think should not be public please also let me know about that.

Research a Person, Family, Event, or Subject

Why not pick a topic that interests you and do some research on it? It could be a specific person, family, or building. It could be a particular story, or year, or event. It could be your club, or a particular hobby, or a subject prompted by what you see here. I would be very happy to support you in this, and to publish what you find out. I can supply basic information, books, recording equipment, and other resources to help you, and even suggest people or topics that you could approach.

Provide a Blog Post

Although you cannot yet publish blog posts directly on the website, if you have something relevant that you would like to see published (however long or short) you could let me have a copy of it and I would be very happy to structure it for the web and publish it here for you. It need only be somehow related to the village, and of possible interest to some people. Indeed if you have a suggestion for a new section to this website, I would love to hear about it too.

Make a Comment

A simpler option is just to make a comment on one of the posts or pages you find in the website, or make a suggestion about one of the people or families under the People section. It need not be a long comment. .

Make a Donation

Although this is a hobby and not commercial, there are various costs involved (e.g. for website hosting, licence fees, sources) and if anyone would like to make a donation this will be put towards offsetting some of these costs, and hopefully enabling us to do more for longer. You are welcome to make a donation in person (e.g. at Chatters) or via the PayPal button below.

Subscribe to our Occasional Newsletter

If you would like to receive our occasional (usually 2-3 per year) newsletter, telling you about updates etc., then please do so using the form on the right, or contact me and I will send you a subscription form. It would also help me to know of your interest. Alternatively you can subscribe to our RSS RSS feed.

CakeAnother way to provide feedback or new information etc. is to come to Chatters in Needingworth Village Hall on Thursday afternoons (1.30-3.30), where Peter is usually to be found helping people with computer issues, as well as chatting about history.
