How to Contribute to this Site

Adding your words and pictures

This website has been set up by Meldreth Local History Group (MLHG), which is also responsible for administering the site.  The initial content has been uploaded by Group members but this is a community website and in time we hope that contributions will be made by members of the public. If you have something to share we'd love to hear from you. You can add your words and photos to this site instantly. Just register and off you go! You'll be guided through the process by simple on-screen instructions and it only takes a few minutes.

It's a great way to share your own stories, memories, pictures and research with the rest of the world. 

So what could you add?  

  • an old photo of people or places in Meldreth
  • memories of your life in Meldreth
  • the history of a house in the village
  • a new photo recording some aspect of the village today
  • comments to some of the existing pages.

It's entirely up to you what you add.  Your memory can be of an event you attended last week or something that happened years ago. If you are unsure, browse the site to see what other people have added. Some people just add one photo or one paragraph of text, while others add complete articles or photo galleries. 

It's so easy!

  • You can sign in now and create your page.
  • You can save your page at any time and return to it later if you wish.  Once you've finished your page, just press a button to submit your words and photos to our editors for publishing.
  • Our volunteer editors usually take a couple of days to add your pages to the website and an email will be sent to you when your article goes live.
  • The next time you want to add information, just log in with your name and password.

Why do I need to register and log-in?

Registering sets up your own personal part of the site. It also helps to stop rude or unacceptable material being added to the site by web browsers.

We keep your details in case the editors need to contact you.  For example, they might need to check something about your page before it goes on the main site. Your email address will not be publicly available on the site and we will not pass it on to anyone else without your permission. You can read more about our privacy policy here.

Terms and conditions

  • Text submitted to the site may be sub-edited for the sake of clarity or readability.
  • Images submitted to the site may be cropped or digitally enhanced (for example, to improve contrast).
  • Meldreth Local History Group is under no obligation to publish any text or photographs submitted to the site.
  • MLHG may reject material on the grounds of copyright infringement, offensiveness or other legal considerations.
  • MLHG cannot accept contributions of a commercial, marketing or advertising nature. We will, however, accept editorial content from commercial organisations (for example, the memories of a shop-owner).

Any questions?

Do you need any help with the material you're thinking of adding? Do you need help with writing your story, or help with publishing it to the site?  If so, please contact us.
