Contact Details and Site Information
Thanks to the generosity of the people of Collingham, and under the auspices of the Parish Council who direct that generosity, this site is an advertisement free zone. Although the site is funded by the Parish Council, the Webmasters are unpaid volunteers, and remain editorially independent.
If you want to update any entry on the website, ‘Have your say’, post a meeting, sell or buy something, or even just drop us a line to tell us what you like or dislike about our site, just e mail us or…
Contact Doctor Derek “The Mad Professor” Middlemiss (01636 892821)...
or Terry “The Gnome” Ozbourne (01636 892508)
(If you get the answer machine, just leave a message and he will ring back when he’s finished doing whatever it is that gnomes do…)
Links to external sites
Though there are many links to external sites on our web pages and we make every effort to ensure they are suitable for family viewing, Collingham Website cannot accept responsibility for the contents of external websites.
Help us to run this site!
Firstly, sorry, but you do need to be a resident in Collingham. Not because it would be difficult to access the site, you could do that from anywhere in the world, but there is more to it than just writing a bit of HTML. The current administrators are residents and meet informally at irregular intervals (occasionally over a glass of wine or mug of coffee) to discuss the site and how long they can continue to run it without money. They also know many people in the village and have a great affection for it.
Secondly, you need to be a bit of a geek, though in the nicest possible way! Sometimes it can take hours to update the site in a way that makes it a little more interesting to the users than just plonking in a little text. On the other hand, there’s quite a lot of that to do as well, such as updating the events page. The Mad Professor is good at the data entry bit, the Gnome does all the fancy bits, so a couple of similarly gifted helpers would be great. By the way, you don’t need to be a super-duper HTML programmer, it’s all fairly low level stuff and often the hardest bit is getting things to work within the template of the site. A bit of lateral thinking comes in handy.
Ole Gnomey’s feeling his age a bit (he is after all six-hundred-and-sixty-six) and the Mad Professor’s no spring chicken, so they need someone who can take on the mantle of responsibility and assure the future of the site.
The remuneration is directly proportional to the love of the job. In other words, the more you love it, the more hours you’ll work for nothing, other than the satisfaction of having done the best job you possibly can for one of the best villages in the county, if not the country.
