OED Another Resource to help you
Inside the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) are over fifty-nine million words, close to 300,000 entries, and more than two million illustrative quotations. Since publication of the full Dictionary in 1928, the OED has been regarded as the most authoritative and comprehensive English language dictionary in the world. ArtAtac Design have offered a licensed copy of the OED on CD Rom (rrp 300) on long term loan. We are looking for a village to host it as a resource for the whole 22village community. Villages would then contact you by email asking for definitions and first used information. Contact Joe for more information.

Another village on the web!
For inspiration on what your community could achieve with regard to recording history on the web, check out http://www.maidenbower.org.uk/history/  This is Maidenbower village in Sussex and it contains some interesting and very readable information and ideas. The site won best community web site in the recent UK Web Site of the Year.
