4. Post your own news and events. A big part of Patch and one of the things that makes it unique is that anyone can post Events to our calendar or Announcements (sort of mini-articles) to the site directly and they go live immediately, without having to go through the editors. Photos, videos and PDFs can all be uploaded as well.
To post Announcements, go to the Announcements page—the link above; accessible under the "News" tab on our navigation bar—and click on the "Add an Announcement" button over on the right. For Events, click on the "Post an event" link under the top four stories on our homepage, or go to the calendar at winchester.patch.com/events and click the "Add an Event" button over on the right.
5. Instagramming this weekend? If you take a great Winchester photo this weekend, be sure to share it with everyone in our Pics and Clips neighborhood gallery. It's even easier to add photos to Patch from your phone with the Patch iPhone app.
