Volunteers Week!

I love my job volunteering for Chorley FM. It allows me to give something back to my community, and it's fun!

If you don't already volunteer I would highly recommend it!

Community News

Hi folks. As I mentioned around a month ago it was my intention to close this community in May. I felt that it had run its course and very few members were actually making any use of the community.

However, it then dawned on me that if I close the community, I would in fact have to delete it, which would cause all of the posts made here to be deleted also.

I didn't really want to do that as I felt that it could create issues for members (broken links etc) and it was also a pity to delete the complete history of the community.

That said, I will be spending less time here myself and this creates an issue if the community stays open. An un-moderated community can soon become over-run with spam and completely ruined in any event.

Happily, +Alan Stainer has kindly offered to step up to assist in moderating the community. I have made Alan a moderator with immediate effect and Alan and I will, between us, keep an eye on things here in the event that people still wish to participate.

Thanks for your help Alan!

Doctors Reporting Unfit Drivers to DVLA

Drivers are very often reluctant to admit that they are medically unfit to drive. Should the onus be on GPs to notify DVLA?
Should Doctors Report Unfit Drivers to DVLA?

GPs can report patients, considered unfit to drive, to DVLA without telling the patient.

Should GPs be required to report unfit drivers?

How much time do you spend on Social Media?

Are you above or below average?

Paid social: thoughts please!

As part of an experiment, I'm running consecutive ads on Twitter, Facebook, and even LinkedIn.

I shall share the results on my experiment when it ends, but in the meantime I'd love to hear about your experiences of using promoted social posts.

Any major pitfalls to avoid? Any top tips to follow?
