Why Choose Us

We have been providing a fully managed website service to parish and town councils since 2005; a service that offers full continuity and less burden on the clerk at a cost that is often significantly less than our competitors who will rent you a website which you have to update yourself.

Our website service includes the added value of free access to our local government administration and legislation advice, technical and computer advice and, if necessary we will take over your computer and fix any issues relating to our services.
 
No Parish or Town Council legally needs to provide more than can be covered by our basic Parish Package.

All our other packages and facilities are optional which makes us the cheapest full time service provider currently available.

New UK Government Legislation

All council websites must be WCAG2.1AA and all device compliant by 25th September 2020

"Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are part of a series of web accessibility guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main international standards organization for the internet. They consist of a set of guidelines for making content accessible, primarily for people with disabilities, but also for all user agents, including highly limited devices, such as mobile phones. Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities, and to encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals."
