There was huge attendance today at a special Our Place event in the majestic Civic Hall in Ellesmere Port – and sat in the audience were seven of the latest recruits to the Community Reporter network waiting to receive their badges and certificates from the Institute of Community Reporters.
Elaine Dunn from EPNAVCO explained how the funding for the training had come through an Our Place initiative in Ellesmere Port (see video of Elaine below). Twelve local residents were put through the training and they have produced a wide range of content about life in Ellesmere Port throughout the programme: check out communityreporter.co.uk for their written stories, audio and video content.
We’re so proud of all that the reporters have achieved so far and are looking forward to an on-going realtionship with EPNAVCO to support the reporters as they develop further.
