Moving on to Food and Drink .. after a damp and windy morning start, the weather cleared and the market soon became packed-out with visitors as you can see!

After dark: jazz ad rock complete the day

Now that’s my cup of tea!

Cottingham is campaigning for change – to make YOU the centre of the news, not the presenters!

We want you to upload your old and new movie clips and stories directly –or with our assistance converting from film and tape. If you have a smart phone with a camera, you can do DIY reporting! We can help you rescue your old films and images you captured so carefully on film and upload them to make a living chronicle of Cottingham life.

A manifesto for local tv reporting and broadcasting

  • No more us vs. them!
  • We wish you to make the centre of News as you you bring it to us, not for us to present it as we see best for us and to represent our interests.
  • We want your involvement to be direct, to be more presentational – rather than be presented by our representatives!
  • We want you to be more participative and engaging!
  • We want you to research, make and present your news!
  • News: it’s not run for the benefit of the self-serving presenters, it’s about engaging the people to report and present events and issues themselves!
  • By involving you in reporting publishing, promoting and presenting we can help you make your local news more engaging and accountable – representing the needs of the many as well as the needs of the few as employees!
  • The news appears to be gathered and reported by an exclusive club of insiders and presented by ‘teflon coated’ individuals and we think it’s time to shake things up a bit!
