Before we all close up shop for Christmas, a little note to say thanks very much for all the support for the Limpsfield website since its launch in October.
The aim of the Limpsfield website and related social media is to help maintain a sense of the lovely community of the Limpsfield parish area; to provide useful information for people who live in the parish; to promote Limpsfield’s businesses and attractions; sing about all the amazing people who contribute to the community and generally provide a little bit of insight into Limpsfield life!
The site, FB, Twitter etc is completely voluntary and managed in “spare” time and relies on Limpsfield residents and business owners for information, news and general goings-on in the area. If you want to be included, please email your business, organisation or events info, photos, what’s on and Flashback Friday photos to email@example.com. Everything is greatly appreciated, and as long as it’s relevant and appropriate, it will be included!
Constructive feedback is more than welcome, so let me know what you think about the site and if you have any suggestions for content!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.
