The calendar displays a list of village events. Events are categorised so that events for a single venue or a single organisation can be displayed. As an author, you should have write access to the calendar, allowing you to add new events, or alter the details (date, time, venue or other information) or delete events you previously created.

Events can be one-off, with a single start date/time and end date/time (which need not be on the same day as the start). Events do not have to have a start and end time - they can be "whole day" events or can just be given a start time. The calendar can also manage repeating events - events that happen regularly every week or every month.

Further details of how to manage one-off events is given in the following links:

Guidance is given in the following links on the management of repeating events:

 

A number of event categories are defined, for the various regular event locations (Mission Hall, Springhead etc.); each of these loctions is identified using a distinctive colour. Different strengths of colour are used to highlight one-off events (strong colour), monthly (weak colour) or weekly (grey).

 

The Home Page contains a small area for notices on forthcoming events or latest news.

 

Finally, there are various ways in which the System Administrators can alter the presentation of the calendar displays.
