Hodnet Walks 2019

Hodnet Footpath Group [HFG] has finalised its programme of walks for 2019, and everyone is welcome to join us along with well behaved dogs – on leads where appropriate.
Our walks are leisurely paced and suitable for most abilities.
Suitable clothing/footwear are advised, and bring your own refreshments – if desired.
We will be continuing to promote/walk selected routes from our recently expanded series of walk leaflets – available from a range of local outlets and downloadable from our page ofr this website.
We’re a friendly bunch and always more than happy to welcome new faces. We hope you can join us.

Wanted – People with Enthusiasm

The Original Hodnet Webteam
The Original Hodnet Webteam in 2010

After many years almost single-handedly creating and maintaining the Hodnet website, Randall Hardy is stepping down in the coming months. The Parish Council is therefore looking for someone who would be willing to take forward the roles of webmaster and editor for this excellent Parish resource.

Whilst Randall has combined the roles of technical development and reporting, there is no reason why these two aspects cannot be done by different people, or even a small team – the latter being the early vision behind the site.

The voluntary position of webmaster in its current form takes up around three hours a week on average, including reporting. It requires someone with enthusiasm and either existing IT skills, or the motivation to develop them. The website currently use the WordPress platform.

If this is something where you feel you could make a contribution, in either role, to keeping the village website going forward, and would like to know more about the current arrangements, please contact Randall email or 01952-540970.

If interested in taking the Hodnet community website forward, volunteers will need to make themselves known to the Parish Council by contacting the Parish Clerk, Ian Cruise-Taylor, email.
