ABOUT THIS WEBSITE ......
Around the turn of the Millennium I was a councillor on Box Parish Council
Out went the 'sit up and beg' typewriter, in the bin went the 'Tippex' and a desktop personal computer was installed and we connected to the internet.
Through an acquaintance of mine I obtained the domain name of www.boxparish.org.uk. This domain is REGISTERED in the name of the clerk to Box Parish Council. The email address of firstname.lastname@example.org goes with it. So they retain control over both.
I offered to create a website with a view to publishing the business of the parish council for parishioners (and by default - the whole world) to view. I was delegated by the council to retain full editorial rights which I continue to exercise to this day.
This website still contains a great deal of information about the parish council which is to be found in its own section. This information is forwarded to me by the council clerk. I accept this information 'as is' and it gets published without change or comment by me.
Neither do I permit cross-references to social networks.
I don't think there has been any real problem with this policy for the last 13 years.
I am always willing to listen to new ideas and constructive suggestions about the 'community' parts of the website and this can be done via the 'CONTACT US' page (see the main menu). Matters for the council section must be directed to the clerk.
Please understand that I provide this service on a voluntary (free) basis, subject to my availability. Despite that, most updates are usually made within hours of my receiving them.
