Hello from your new Editor for Wakefield

Hello to you all,

My name is Chelsea and I have a daughter aged 20 months. I have recently started in this role and I am still finding my feet so bare with me.

I am currently working on improving our site, adding as much useful information as possible to share with the Wakefield parents in all aspects of their busy lives.

It would be hugely helpful if you could share your local favourite businesses and add your reviews and suggestions to the listings. You can load these up yourselves or tell me and I will list it for you. Any comments, feedback or suggestions on how to improve our site are most welcome.

I am also very eager to re-vamp our local forum to get parents talking and would like to help organise regular meet-ups. Best way to coordinate these would be through a Local Ambassador - if anyone is interested in volunteering, please let me know.

Please pop over to say hello, on our Facebook and Twitter and share your experiences or just to "like" us.

I am very excited to be here and I'm looking forward to getting to know and meeting many of you soon.

Hello! Thanks for coming back!

Where do you live?

KnickersOnOnesHead Wed 02-Apr-14 13:12:48

I live in Ossett but I do drive so travelling isn't a problem smile

LocalEditorWakefield Wed 02-Apr-14 13:14:53

That's great I live in Horbury.

Would you be interested in becoming a local ambassador for your area to arrange meet ups?

Would be great for someone to give a helping hand to get things back up and running!

Hi *ellliebelle"

So close to me!

Maybe we could arrange a meet up some time?

KnickersOnOnesHead Wed 02-Apr-14 17:37:28

My laptop is out of action at the minute, do maybe when it's back up and running. My kids go to school in Netherton and the other half lives there so we're always in that area.

Okay lovely!

Something to look forward too.
