On the 7th July 2010, we launched ‘B31 Blog’ hoping to record some things that were going on close to our home at Hollymoor, Northfield. View our very first entry!
B31 Voices has since spread its footprint, had a rebrand, reported on everything from lost pets to murders to elections, shared crowd-sourced information for features such as #b31snowwatch, helped local community campaigners, live-blogged events, developed invaluable links within the community, acquired ten volunteer bloggers and has grown as a community resource.
Just this week we were granted a small amount of funding from Longbridge Community Firstto help continue and expand on our work in the community! (More on our exciting plans for that later!)
We thought we’d take a quick look at what was going on in this week from the archives of B31 Voices and B31 blog!
Happy 3rd Birthday to us! We’re still just a toddler…. goodness knows what we’ll be when we grow up! ;)
