About 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, appeared in national media, 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.

If you’d like to browse our article archive you can do so here and if you’d like to get in touch, please email or message us on social media and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
