Car accidents can be terrifying experiences. Often, some of the people involved are injured, sometimes several and the vehicles that crashed are fully damaged. I felt very sad for the incident, hey Keith don’t worry you will recover soon and will drive as you drive before.

I'm going to be doing some fundraising events to raise money to build a nursery in Ghana and provide water pumps for more villages in Ghana.. My story is that I went to Ghana last year and automatically fell in love with the people there
, they made me feel so welcome and loved. I volunteered at a free school over there which was a building with no windows or doors no bigger than most people's living rooms, children from the age of 1 year old up to the age of 17 were placed in here, so you can only imagine what kind of education they are recieving and as most people believe the children are our future so I would like to change this by firstly splitting the ages up to give all the children the best start in life and an improvement on they education.. Secondly I met children as young as 3 walking 6/7 miles maybe even more just to collect clean drinking water. By the time they had walked miles they had hardly no water left in they buckets. So any little helps.

I’m a front-end developer based in Bristol currently working for 42droids. I have a passion for simple and beautiful interface design, but also love logic and structure when it comes to coding. I’m a mathematician with a law degree. It’s worth knowing that I am in a long lasting relationship with both caffeine and my Mac! I’m a wannabe traveller with the passion to learn everything and be in perpetual motion. When I’m not coding or making pretty designs, I’m out and about with my mountain bike exploring the local terrain that Great Britain has to offer.

Also, the radio package I did on the man who owns a local environmental graveyard took a twist this week too because the owner passed away. 
The final piece -- http://bit.ly/1kyUcdd -- was three minutes long, but I have a 45 minute interview with a man who will never have the chance to speak again. 
I am going to package the interview on a disc so the family can keep it.
Never underestimate the power of what we are doing here in our respective communities. We have the power to capture precious little moments of history that can make the world of difference to those around us.

This is a typical FB newsbite from the Fyvie Herald. As part of Fireworkx Scotland Ltd's license to carry out the firework display mentioned below, they were told by the local council to inform local media outlets at least one week in advance.
This is a company from Inverurie, 20 miles away from my news community in Fyvie, but they know about the Herald.
Given time, community journalism projects can blossom into pillars of local communities, and that is tremendously exciting.
My target audience revel in posts like this because anymore than three or four pars of text and they stop reading.
The post reads as follows:
FYVIE CASTLE will be lit up a week on Saturday by a brief professional firework display.

Fireworx Scotland Ltd, of Inverurie, will be firing a short 10 minute show between 23.40 and 23.55 in the castle grounds on Saturday, 14 June.

Permission for the display has been granted by Aberdeenshire Council and local residents are advised to keep pets indoors for the duration of the event.
