I have a keen interest in news and current affairs and develop websites for a living. Having moved to Wednesfield a couple of years ago, I was struck by the sense of community in the area and wanted to try and use my skills to do something positive for the community. WV11.co.uk is the result!

I have lived in Wednesfield most of my life. I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than many residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk, so I did!
