The St Margarets Traders Association is keen to increase the use of it’s website www.mystmargarets.com by developing new social media campaigns and exciting web site content. They are seeking a local person looking for work experience around the web and social media marketing.
You would be given support and guidance by working with the association’s web team and traders, but a fair bit of space to experiment. The role would include running a series of promotions and activities via Facebook, Twitter and the web by working with local businesses to promote St Margarets and the traders.

“Soldiers, sailors and airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force. You are about to embark upon the great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hope and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower — June 6, 1944
Our lives are shaped by the decisions that we make. Some are marginal. “Shall I have tea or coffee this morning?” “Shall I take a coat today”. Others are far wider reaching. “Shall I buy this house or that one?” “Shall I marry this person or another?” There are some decisions however that are so important, so all encompassing that they affect not just our lives but also the lives of others and their children and grand children and their overall destinies far into the future..
One such decision was made on the 5th June 1944 by two men - one from Abilene Kansas and the other from Kew.

St Margarets Win The Derby!
Despite the appalling weather and their abysmal sporting record the 1st St Margarets Cub Pack won the Tri-Annual Soap Box Derby at the Twickeree Camp this weekend in Marble Hill Park. Competing against 14 other Packs the 23 strong squad of boys and girls pushed, panted and propelled their home-made cart through heats, quarter and semi finals and eventually the final itself to victory. The only thing to decide now is who gets to look after the trophy first!
