Monmouthshire / Sir Fynwy

MonmouthpediA

MonmouthpediA is the first Wikipedia project to embrace a whole town.

The project aims to cover every single notable place, person, artefact, plant, animal and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible, but with a special focus on Welsh. This is a different scale of wiki-project. The project is jointly funded by Monmouthshire County Council and Wikimedia UK, Monmouthshire County Council are currently installing free town wide Wi-Fi for the project.

Monmouthpedia uses QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone or tablet can read through its camera (using one of the many free QR readers available) that takes you to a Wikipedia article in your language. QR codes are extremely useful, as physical signs have no way of displaying the same amount of information and in a potentially huge number of languages.

bruno1 commented on Street lighting:

I work shifts and have come home to no street lights on. I live alone and it was very unpleasant not to mention unsafe to be in total darkness. I pay my council tax to cover the street lights. Why can you not just turn off 50% of the lights or just dim them. I am also contacting my mp about this. Continue reading 'Street lighting' >
