Submissions to the Website

On the Maulden Village website, We aim to publish researched, planned articles, and reactive pieces responding to local issues. We are interested in any article of relevance to the Maulden community, and actively seek articles from village clubs and societies.

This document sets out the guidelines for submission and the articles. It is a work in progress and will be regularly updated.

Errors and Omissions

We check all our articles to source websites or original notes of meetings and interviews, and take reasonable care to allow anyone mentioned or affected a reasonable chance to comment or correct the facts. However, errors can creep in, despite our best efforts.

Please contact us with any matters of factual accuracy, tone, relevance or copyright. We aim to correct all errors within 7 working days, and intend (subject to certain restrictions) to publish retractions with equal prominence where the error was material and there is a source we can check that to, or if content is potentially infringing.

We do ask that you keep your correspondence factual, calm and polite.
