A brief history…
WV11.co.uk has been in existence since 2009. One of the first ‘hyperlocal’ websites in the West Midlands, we have posted 1000’s of articles about community news & events in Wednesfield, won awards, been sighted as best practice in academic studies and encouraged others to tell their own stories online.
After the death of my wife & co-founder Steph Clarke in late 2016, my time and enthusiasm to update the website waned, however I wanted to keep things going as both Steph and I have put a lot of time and effort into building this online community, something Steph was hugely proud of. In fact, the night before she died she was hunched over her laptop into the early hours updating the site.
Luckily, our friend Robin Tinsley stepped in and offered to help me keep things going. Since then we have done our best to use the social media following we have built to share relevant information for local people.
