Welcome to the Ruardean Community Website

Your Community, Your Web Space!  It is the vision that the Ruardean Community Web will be a 'one stop shop' for our parish villages (Ruardean & Pludds) organisations, clubs, associations and "Whats On".  It can only be as good as the information you post - so let us know.  It is our community window to the world!

The www.ruardeancommunity.btck.co.uk  is the parent URL (web address).  But your may find the simpler www.ruardeanpludds.info  easier to remember and use.  Save it to your favourites now!

We look forward to receiving information that maybe posted onto the web site which is supported by BT under their supporting the community initiative.  We Need Your Input, we can only post information that we are told about - so if you are organising an event and want to send a 'shout out' to the world then let us know - ruardean.info@btinternet.com.  If you do not receive a reply within 72 hours please email Rick Seager (rickseager@btinternet.com) or telephone 01594 543217.   This website was last updated on 14th September 2014
