Live Mendips brings you a microcosm of news and happenings in the westcountry.  We focus on news, views and what’s on in the Mendips, Wrington Vale and Chew Valley, and cover features from Bristol, Bath, Weston and Somerset.

We’re taking a short break at the moment while we pursue another project – back soon.  If you want to get involved why not email us?

We want to encourage community participation so why don’t you get involved?

GOT A STORY? email and let us know!

SHARE YOUR STORY: We’re looking for community volounteers!  Live Mendips is a community news website, and is written by people that live and work in the local area.   Have you got a story you want to share about where you live – or an opinion on something that affects people living, working or visiting the Mendips?

Get writing and email with your story of between 300 and 500 words, together with any photographs or videos and you could see your article featured on our front page!

SHARE ON SOCIAL: Have you got any views or opinions on any of the stories featured on Live Mendips? Please like our Facebook page and tweet us your views and please share the stories using your social networks and see what your friends think!

PUBLICISE YOUR EVENT: Are you organising an event in your local area –perhaps a village garden open day, a charity fund raiser or a countryside ramble –and want it to feature in our What’s on listings?  We are very happy to take free submissions for events from voluntary groups and charities. Drop us a line with a date and a brief description on with details and a link to your website if you have one.

SIGN UP TO OUR EMAIL NEWSLETTER: we’ll bring you a monthly round-up of news, views and what’s on in your area.  We won’t share your email with anyone else!
