Thanks to our kind sponsors – whom we hope you will support (Rosie’s Kitchen, Crooklets Inn, Trev’s Taxi, Just Gentz, Krama Yoga, Bude Music Studio) – we are able to work as a community website to disseminate Bude and area news/events, etc., for free.
It is an amazing community service which has built up over years with the invaluable help of Rob Wilcox, Dean Wronowski and our occasional writers. Dawn writes/adds most of the content for free. However, it really helps to have community input and that is what the site is about.
You can help in various ways:
- Businesses – why not advertise? Our rates are very fair (annually, quarterly, half yearly alla available) and if you advertise you also access all our social media to promote special events, job vacancies and any news/updates. While we share some info about other businesses, our focus is firmly on our advertisers and on community events/news.
- If you don’t feel up to writing occasional articles for Bude and Beyond, consider posting info/links to our Facebook page and they will be used. Or if you regularly draw info to our attention, why not join our closed group which I’ve now set up? This gives you a more private platform for share issues, etc. https://www.facebook.com/groups/www.budeandbeyond.co.uk/
- If you want to submit articles, news, photos, events, etc., then there is a DIY way – you don’t have to wait for Dawn. Submit here for news. Here for events. Don’t worry. Dawn checks everything before it goes on the site so typos are corrected, etc.
- Alternatively, send your news or info to Dawn by email firstname.lastname@example.org via 07456 461838 (please message don’t call) or via Facebook/Messenger/WhatsApp (Dawn Robinson)/Instagram or Twitter
