For some time, Croydon Natural History & Scientific Society has maintained an Archive site through which you can view past issues of our Bulletin as well as the Croydon Bibliographies for Regional Survey, which details our library acquisitions over an extensive period. The information on this site is useful to researchers, but the Society’s Council felt that a more engaging ‘front door’ was needed to put the Society’s work more prominently before the public and to engage people in our activities.
The result is this new site, and at a new address: www.cnhss.co.uk. The archive will remain over at www.cnhss.org.uk, and we will make sure that there are links between the two sites. We are still developing some of the content, but we are starting with information about our events, talks and walks, as well as details of how to join the Society. In time we will also use the site to showcase some of the items the Society holds in its collections, and the particular project work that our members are pursuing under the Society’s banner. We will continue our Twitter and Facebook activities, linking them up to the new site, and if you are signed up to our regular newsletter email, you can expect links from the Newsletter back to the new site.
We hope that you will find it a great way to keep in touch with all that the Society is doing. As we continue to develop the site, we’d love to hear your views about ways in which it can better present the work of the Society. If you’d like to provide us with feedback, you can use the form below.
