It’s our Birthday – is 1!

Happy Birthday

This week marks 1 year since we made the first post on!

We’ve decided to celebrate by thanking everyone who has contributed to the website; either by sending us news, commenting on articles, supporting us on Facebook and Twitter, emailing us with messages of support or advertising on the site. THANK YOU!!!

Special thanks also go to: Simon Hamilton, Kate Hughes, Irene Dodd, Manjeet Singh, PCSO Matt Bailey, Bryan & Gemma Murphy, the members of WAAN and Sabcat Printing.

The site has come a long way in the past 12 months and whilst we’re only a team of two, we’re really pleased with the response we’ve had from the local community. It’s great when we bump into someone we don’t know and they’ve heard of the site and we hope that continues to be a valuable resource to the people of Wednesfield.

We’d love more people to get involved with the website, so if you’d like to contribute or you have any views on what we should be writing about, please email us on or call/text us on 07855 409 319.
