Here are a few things about Withenwick.
Withernwick is in the East
Riding of Yorkshire.
It is about 10 miles from
Hull and 4 miles from Hornsea.

It is an ancient village
mentioned in the Doomsday Book.
The Falcon Inn is a rare
survival of a traditional country pub.
It is a lovely friendly
village and although off the beaten track is well worth a visit.

The website was first started in
I do depend on everyone
supplying me with stuff to keep the website going, so here are some
ideas of things and how to get them to me
Any interesting photos
of scenes, people or events - old or new. Send them by be-mail (about 600 x
400 pixels or larger)
or if you need a photo scanning please see Paul
Videos are a problem as they
are so large. The best thing to do is to upload them onto
Youtube and send me the web address (something like www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQ-2CyWVERw)
and I can link from the website to your video. Uploading to Youtube
is easy, simply create a free account and it's straightforward,
just make sure they are in .mpg format.. You could also use
Dailymotion, again videos need to be in .mpg format.
Pets, of any description, for
Pets Corner, and Pet's stories such as "Scruffy's
Any interesting stories of
hobbies and interests, I do seem to have set a precedent here
that they have to be on music, but anything that you think might
be interesting would be good. I'm sure you do all do interesting
things or have done interesting things in the past; they can
just be a one-off event.
Articles of the history,
geography and nature of Withernwick. Again e-mail it as a Word
or text document or even
give it to me hand written. Also tales of Withernwick, anyone's
memories of the village in the past, even the recent past,
history does happen quickly.
I do particularly need
"Items for Sale". This is what will keep the site
buzzing - and it does work, I personally have sold a few things
already and made £80! It is so easy for the buyer to collect
what they've bought. And now its free!
Any other ideas, the website
is very flexible, so if you can think of something that doesn't
seem to fit anywhere, don't worry I'll create a home for it.
