This is our ThingsToDo page…later to be migrated to Basecamp CoSMM when it’s for more public consumption:
|Event||Local Offa-ings||"Offa-ing ideas" An event where local schools, clubs, groups, etc. are invited along to see the designs with cakes, coffees/teas (and perhaps judge them?) and the Micro-CoSMM scrapbook (or online blog from the web site from the things you have sent us)|
Raffle, cakes, refreshments, projector, organised walk, playing our Podcasts, etc.
|Venue, permission, funding, etc.||None|
|Event||Crafty Offa-ings||Arrange an arts and crafts day that is Offa's/Wat's dyke related. |
Initially at the Offa's Dyke Centre (later at other locations on along the dyke), the event could last no more than 6 hours (10am-4pm) and have a small art exhibition of photographs, painting, sculptures, etc. with "guess the location" raffle and refreshments with cakes based on the dyke(s), Saxons, dyke creation, etc.
Prizes to the best 3 public artworks or cakes and the nearest correct answer for the location of the artwork.
|Coffee/tea-making facilities, plates and cutlery, table wear, facilities for displaying the artwork (telly for multimedia displays if necessary).||Generic health and safety for the venue and public access to hot food & drink
Tidying up afterwards
|Experimental||Design a dyke||Experimental archaeology: Get the local schools/colleges/clubs, etc. to design a dyke looking at the designs from the archaeological record.|
Design a dyke that could be built at a local venue perhaps - even a model at a school
|Pens, paper, modeling tools, etc.|
|Experimental||Build a dyke||Experimental archaeology: 3m by 5m deep with the ramp up the 5m stretch at an angle to the viewing point so the visitors can see the dyke and what it showed and obscured|
Ideally the first would be at the Knighton Offa's Dyke Centre with a camera from the centre looking at the structure and taking photos periodically - time-lapse or streaming video
|Timber, chalk, soil, mattock, safety gear (from local builders?), manpower (local builders?), etc.||Data Protection
Local authority permission, warning signs, heritage notice board, etc. (aided by and through the project)
|Liaison||Local contacts||Please list the local contacts in schools, colleges, clubs, associations, colleges, guide/scout groups, local press, local businesses (perhaps for sponsorship), etc. that you feel would be helpful||Notes||None|
|Liaison||Micro-CoSMM meetings||Organise meetings between us and the CoSMM.coordinators and invite other locals to show what's been done - using resources you've fed back to CoSMMOut|
Could be via Skype or Facebook chat or a mixture of, say, Offa's Dyke Centre meeting room and online chat/skype
|To Be Decided |
Venue if necessary
|Liaison||Project updates/liasison||Liaison with us about ideas you or your group has had.|
Anything of interest in the local area?
Any concerns about planning, etc. that we may be able to help with
|Venue, skype/social media||None|
|Project||Chain Reaction||A group of volunteers photograph themselves on the dyke from distances of 20m between people (the 1st at a fixed point). |
Then turn around and photograph the person behind them
|Digital camera's or smartphones||Data Protection
Care to time it photos so the 'next' person you are photographing stays still until the shot is taken.
Ensure the (rough) distance is noted
|Project||Personal Historys||Kids (with chaparone if necessary) take recording devices and interview older local residents to see what they remember about living near the dyke and when their forefathers (and/or friends) took them to walk or play around the dyke||Pen & paper|
recorder (smartphone or other hand-held recorder)
Accompanied by adult/chaparone/teacher
|Project||Fixed point photography||At fixed points along the dyke, take photos towards the 4 points of the compass.|
Note the time and date (time of year) and in what direction for each photo in a log
Photos to be taken at regular intervals (say, once per month?)
Note: Fixed points to be discussed by CoSMM & coordinators with Offa's Dyke Path officer
|Camera or smartphone||Ensure the notes are made of the direction, date and time
Ensure they are on the path not the monument where possible
Offa's Dyke Ale
|Contact a local brewery with the ODA-at-50 logo to put on one or more ales (about 3% - 5% hoppy to strong session)||To Be Decided||Cost
|Project||Viewpoint photography||Like Fixed Point Photgraphy but taken from away from the dyke towards the fixed point||Camera or smartphone||Ensure the notes are made of which fixed point, date and time
Ensure they are not on the monument where possible
|Outreach||50 events in the 50th anniversary||To Be Decided||Costs

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:
Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)
…or something like this:
The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
As a new WordPress user, you should go to your dashboard to delete this page and create new pages for your content. Have fun!
We have zotero so we can insert references … e.g. Landscape archaeology and GIS is a good book
and maps so we can geo-locate areas of concern or fixed-point photography points
