About is a volunteer run award-winning website dedicated to covering community news and events in and around Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.

Got a new story? Add it here! Or perhaps you’re running an event? Add it here!

The site was founded in July 2009 by husband and wife team James Clarke and Steph Clarke and since then we have become involved in various community groups in the area.

In 2011 we were given a ‘Pride of Wolverhampton’ award by local radio station Signal 107 (formerly The Wolf) and in 2012 we were given the ‘Community Engagement’ award by Talk About Local.

If you’d like to find out more about why we started the site, listen to an interview we did with Nick Booth of Podnosh for his BBC Blog below…
