Subject: [ciresearchers] Carlin How - a new Digital Village

Here's a chance to follow one of these things from the beginning. 500 leaflets went out on Monday to all the houses in Carlin How inviting people to the community centre for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat. On the Friday noon session only one woman turned up but she was keen and I said that she was all we needed to make a start. In the evening she returned along with four others. We talked about other closeby Digital Villages including their close neighbour Skinningrove who were at this very position 9 years ago. We had a great chat about village life as well as the heritage and the history and the origin of the Village name. We're about to make a start. It's very tentative and I sensed some nervousness. This will take careful handling.

This is the last time I'll add any content. Watch this space. It may take off or it may not. Who knows, it's an adventure beginning.
