Physical noticeboards are even more important in a digital age, when so many of us get our news and views from online sources which increasingly divide us and don’t reach everyone. Physical boards can be seen by everyone, including those who are not regularly online. They help to create a visual sense of community in a locality. They can encourage us to engage digitally too – everything we get on a poster also gets put online.
We’re cleaning and tidying our existing boards and, with the support of the Duchy, taking on the rear sides of most of the large map boards too. Two new map & noticeboards are planned for the Great Field and Crown Square.
We’ve a growing team of local volunteers to keep the boards, website and social media up to date. By using all these channels we hope to ensure all sections of our community feel more connected.
