Full article

The creation of Jason Lewis and Alison Inglis
www.falklands.info offers an extensive pro-active coverage of the Islands plus an invitation to all visitors to participate in the Falklands experience.

Jason has roots going back to the original settlers of the Islands and Alison is a recent newcomer who quickly fell in love with the Islands making them her home.

Impeccable credentials for an authentic peoples' website initiative with the necessary human sensitivity to counterbalance a world overwhelmed by the influx of statistical and strategic facts.

PRESS RELEASE

Information about the Falklands - for residents, visitors and others - is now available on a new website at www.falklands.info

The website is the brainchild of Jason Lewis, who wanted a project that would fit around time with his young children. He enlisted the help of wife Alison Inglis to produce reviews for some of her favourite Falklands books, and with her enthusiastic assistance the website soon grew to over 200 pages in just 6 months.

Falklands Info covers a lot of ground, including current weather conditions, exhaustive coverage of local clubs and contacts and a links database which contains information on over 160 South Atlantic related websites. The history section is Alison's major contribution, including a chronology of significant events in the Islands' history and a timeline following the events of the 1982 Falklands War.

"We want to expand and improve the content of the website, and in particular to get our visitors much more involved" says webmaster Jason Lewis "Future work will include launching a discussion forum, and also a photo gallery where people can upload their favourite Falkland Islands Photos. We hope to include more material of interest to prospective tourists."

"We want our visitors input" says Jason "We don't pretend we know what they want and would welcome ideas and suggestions from everyone." "When you look at the website we hope you will find lots to interest you, from articles on Falklands life to poetry to a range of historical documents" says Alison Inglis, co-author. "We are working on strengthening the natural history input, and I would particularly welcome articles from members of the public on any topic related to the Falklands."

If you have any queries or comments you can contact the authors either by the website or by sending an email directly to either ( alison@falklands.info) or ( jason@falklands.info).
