Ticknall Life – be a part of it!

You can be a part of Ticknall Life community magazine by enjoying the content, sharing with friends or – best of all – producing and updating your own articles or posting items of community news and forthcoming events. To keep up to date with the latest posts to the website please subscribe to our free website updates newsletter.

The Ticknall Life community magazine is a collaborative effort by the community in general and the content contributors in particular. First and foremost, it is about the community and community groups. Any information that you have about your group’s activities is going to be of interest to readers of Ticknall Life, so if you are a member of a community group it’s a great opportunity for you to get your message in front of people – and it’s free.

Access to the magazine content is free for all, with no obligations or restrictions. However, to succeed as an organ of community life in Ticknall and surrounding areas, Ticknall Life community magazine relies on the active participation of the local community – ideally at least one member from each organisation represented here in addition to other individual authors.

Can you spare a little time to help with the website?

We need help with creating and editing articles on local topics. There are no commitments – just give a little time when you can. You can make a start on your post and save it as a draft for further editing whenever you have time. Don’t worry – nothing will be published until you are happy with the piece.


You may notice that there are a number of posts on the site with little or no content. These are ‘stubs’ which are suggested topics in need of completion. If you would like to take on the topic please let me know and I will hand over the post to your account. The post can be saved as a draft while you work on it, and published when you are ready.

Or, if you have your ear to the ground and you enjoy news gathering, you could be ‘our Ticknall correspondent’ or ‘our man in Melbourne’ (or wherever) and publish community news as it happens. As Paddy McGuinness might say, “The Power Is In Your Hands!”
