The Lee Forum

The Lee Forum is for the exchange of information amongst those who live in The Lee and surrounding villages. Possible uses are:

  • information about local events
  • requests for assistance or recommendations
  • small items for sale or wanted
  • sharing news or pictures
  • security information (e.g. suspicious events)

The Forum should not be used for any advertising of a commercial nature, nor for any party political discussions.

The Lee Forum was first set up in 2009 as a bespoke forum created by Andrew Burnett, to whom many thanks are due. Ten years later the main village website had been rebuilt and moved under the auspices of The Lee Parish Council, who decided that the forum should similarly be rebuilt to be fully integrated with the website under the administration of the Parish Council.

The main advantages of the new integrated forum, catchily to be known as The Lee Forum 2020, are:

  • removal of constraints on despatch of emails, so everyone should receive notifications at the same time
  • separate forums with targetted focus to simplify topic based discussion
  • improved users’ security and privacy (you can see the padlock next to the URL in your browser’s address bar)
  • cleaner look and feel in line with that of the rest of the website

The schedule for introduction of 2020 is:
November 2019: selection of replacement forum software, proof of concept and initial testing by website administrators
December 2019: beta testing by a small number of users

January 2020: all users of the ‘old’ forum will be invited to register for the ‘new’ forum, with both forums running in parallel
February 2020: the ‘old’ forum will become read only, it will be available to all users searching for past information, but no new posts will be accepted
