The playing of the Last Post at sunset
This is the last post for this blog. In February I planned to end it on the last day of May and I have kept my promise to myself.
Writing this Signs of Communities blog has been a personal learning experience. Learning to use WordPress as a CMS – a Content Management System. So much easier, quicker and cheaper than full web design.
I’ve also learned about communities in Kirklees, England. Learned much more than I had the time to post about on the blog. And learned about my honourable family history with its powerful Asian connections – learned very much more than I could post about.
Thank you for your interest in visiting Signs of Communities and reading my posts.
In the words of a great TV star – “Goodnight, thank you, and may your God go with you.”

George Plumley’s WordPress 24-Hour Trainer is a great book which comes with an equally good training DVD. Not cheap, but worth every penny.
I bet it will take you a lot longer than 24 hours to work your way through it!

New Asian Voice is a new full colour monthly for North Kirklees with a community focus. It’s available locally in print and also as a downloadable e-zine from the website www.newasianvoice.com
New Asian Voice and this blog do have a lot in common. In the March ’10 issue on page 3 you will read Empowering Community Voices. A photo article on the Empowering Voices Online (EVO) blogging workshop held at Ravensthorpe Community Centre at which your author was introduced to blogging. Where is he on the panoramic photo of participants? Behind the camera!
On page 5 The Sky is Not the Limit covers the Festival of Flight featured in Signs of Communities posts on February 24th and April 3rd. Their focus is on the Festival of Flight exhibition and event held at Earlsheaton Technology College.
New Asian Voice is a great local venture which deserves your support in these early months of its existence. The best way to support them is to take out a paid advert. To see what they can offer I suggest you could give them a call on 01924 422214 or download the media pack PDF file from their website.

Signs of Communities is a web log of the work of the author and other people who work on behalf of the communities in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England. Work to celebrate and increase the cohesion of our rich variety of communities.
This blog also makes occasional virtual trips to South-east Asia – for reasons of personal community heritage which are outlined in About Me.
