Latest Update

22 May 2020

Steve Nye's Popup Beer Stall will be operating at the Lytton car park from 10am on Sunday. Be there or be thirsty!

18th May 2020 - Knebworth and Marymead Surgery finally relocate to new site in St Martin's Road

For more information, go to the practice's own website.

New page

I created a new page: News from the Comet.

Knebworth.org rises from the ashes!

I have managed to purchase the domain name knebworth.org at auction. I have, for the moment, mirrored it to this site. At some point, I might make it the primary domain, although, technically, a '.org' top level domain should be used only by organizations in the USA.

Coronavirus Pandemic


Please visit the Covid Response Team website for the latest info.

This website has a page on more generic Covid-19 News with some local coronavirus links.

Introduction

Since the demise of knebworth.org, Knebworth has not had a general site to collect together news and information about the village. I thought a wiki would be a good choice, because with this sort of website anyone can register and contribute. I taught myself how to install mediawiki, and this is the result. Please feel free to explore, register and, if you feel the urge, contribute.

I haven't promoted this site on social media, as I am still tweaking the configuration of MediaWiki (the software the site runs on). I also felt that launching in a time of SARS-CoV2 was not exactly auspicious as the existing sites seem to be doing a good job of keeping folk informed. I am not an expert on the software and I want to make sure that it's robust and scalable before Knebworth folk start to put in the effort to create content on the site.

There are relatively few sources of news in Knebworth. An honourable mention must go to Knebworth News who tweets about local events. St. Martin's Church publishes a monthly edition of Knebworth Parish News, but this is available in hard copy only.

Knebworth is a very low-crime area, as is revealed by the UK Crime Map of the civil parish.

Knebworth has its own page on Wikipedia. The editors of Wikipedia are quite fussy about citing sources and generally not allowing any unsupported assertions from appearing on its pages. You can always practice your wiki creation skills by creating a page here before adding material to Wikipedia itself, as both sites use the same underlying content management system.
