Project Packs available beginning of August


Your village pack should be ready by the beginning of August. We were not intending to give these out until the official launch on Mon 23rd August but if your village would like a head start please let Joe know ASAP. The pack has been tailored to each village and contains project ideas, hints, tips and guidelines to ensure you get the most out of the 22villages project. There are also 22village A4 writing pads designed to guide you when researching and referencing information.

Hot Off The Press
The website now has a news and information section. It contains up to the minute news and an archive of all the weekly newsletters. Just click on our new newspaper boy.

This is not only great for all of us who have deleted the old ones! but as the items are indexed you can find what you want easily. For instance if you would like information on the next Open Meeting, simply choose  and the date from the left hand expanding menu, then click on any of the relevant articles. Please try it and let me know what you think, I hope that you find it a valuable resource. The most recent newsletter will always be at the top of the 'By Date' section.

More Support.. Every Tuesday evening
Every Tuesday from 7.00-7.30pm I will be online to offer support, answer questions and generally try to be helpful. All you need to do is connect to the internet and then click on this link or go to the 22village web site and click on the top left notice . This requires that you have a free programme on your pc called NetMeeting (which Joe can supply and set up).
