Well my second Blog has come around quick! It’s me again (Sarah Knight, Communications Officer) and I suppose I can share some snippets with you and whet your appetite for what you can expect to see from us in the upcoming months…
We’re having a busy (or more so than normal) time in the office at the moment, sorting out what we hope will be an exciting, interactive and stunning new website for you all to enjoy. As I’m sure you can imagine, choosing the ideal website design company to redevelop our site involves a great deal of thought and discussion – so it’s all a bit Goldilocks in here! This isn’t helped by the fact that our current site is already great visually, so whoever we choose has big shoes to fill. But with the face of the web changing so much in recent years, we need to move forward and improve our site functionality – and find new ways to interact with our supporters. Any ideas on what you’d like to see from our new site? We’re open to suggestions!
We’re hoping that 2012 will also bring the launch of our membership scheme – which I know a lot of you are very interested in knowing more about! I can’t say anything more until we fill the position of Director of Communications, who will be heading up the membership launch – but stay tuned! And again – we’re open to suggestions. The beauty of a new website and a membership launch is that those of you who already take an active interest in our work can have some input and share your thoughts. Plus it allows us to get a feel for what you want to see!
Spring is most definitely in the air and will hopefully bring with it plenty of press opportunities for us. It will also mean that fairly soon our reserves and projects will start seeing some colour. So I’m asking all the photographers out there (of any skill level) to keep your eye out for the first signs of spring at your local grassland site (if it’s a Grasslands Trust site then even better). And if you take any particularly stunning photographs of meadows species and wildflowers across the UK that you’d be happy to share, we’d love to see them! You could post them on our Facebook wall or share them with us via Twitter. Have fun!
Oh and what do websites and porridge have in common? They both need to be just right… oh dear.
