Think of this website as an electronic noticeboard for the town. It’s here to help you share information about what’s going on. It’s called a “community” website because it’s here for the benefit of local people. Anyone can contribute.

YES! We welcome any news, opinion or creative endeavour from anyone who lives or works locally. All we ask is that you stick to the house rules. You can submit anything to do with Bradford on Avon: news articles, reports about clubs and societies, opinion pieces. You can submit questions you want to ask your fellow townspeople (a feature known as “AskBoA”). As long as it sticks to the house rules, we will be happy to publish it.

We fell into it by accident. I was involved with earlier versions of a local community site. Wiltshire Council we’re involved early on, the BoA site is run independently by volunteers within the town. The website is run on the premise that it’s for the BOA Community & run / contributed by the BOA Community. We welcome contributions & participation from all members of our town, public, private, council, services.

We’d love to hear from anyone who’d like to help out. If you’d like to contribute articles, or help in any other way, please get in touch.

Because we do all this in our spare time, that means it might take us a few hours, or even a day, before we get round to checking and publishing your contribution. Please be patient.

This web site is for the benefit of the community at large. While we welcome local businesses that want to be a part of the community, we have to strike a balance between community news and paid advertising. We will treat each submission on its own merits. If your business is doing something that community should know about, of course it should be mentioned here. Your welcome to place an advert, which help cover our costs.
