As well as moving office on the hottest day of the decade (!) we have recently added a couple of features to our website.
There’s a new forum which is open to everyone to find out more about WWOOFing. Members can use their usual login to post on it and non-members can register just for the forum—the logging in helps us guard against spam. There’s already plenty of activity and information exchange taking place. Here’s a link to the forum. The WWOOF UK team are moderating the forum and need to remind hosts NOT to put your contact details on any posts, please.
The other thing we’ve done is to add a WWOOFer availability search for hosts. Several hosts asked us to provide this and it means you can now search for WWOOFers for particular dates. It will take a while for the WWOOFer information to be filled in but we hope this will be a really useful feature in the long term.
There have been a couple of minor changes within the WWOOF UK team. Holly Cross, our recently appointed Personnel and Organisational Administrator, has taken over responsibility for dealing with the occasional complaints we receive from WWOOFers and hosts. In the unlikely event of you needing to get in touch with her, please use the contact page of our website.
This change leaves Mike Hammer free to concentrate on raising our profile on social media—he posts some fascinating and uplifting things on our Facebook and Twitter accounts and loves to hear from you: firstname.lastname@example.org
