An Open Letter to current and future sponsors.
It really is now a full year since we re-launched the Geddington Community Website. Over that time the site has developed and expanded, with ‘hits’ increasing dramatically, not only from within our community, but worldwide.
In our first year we have posted 103 articles at a rate, on average, of 2 a week; we have an average viewing of around 180 hits each day, with a running total now of over 55,800 hits. We are delighted that the website has proved such a user friendly tool in keeping people up to date and in helping to alleviate the problems around major events like road closures.
The highlight of the year in many ways was the recognition the village received when we were awarded ‘Best Overall Community Website’ from Northamptonshire County Council. The range of pages, the up to date input and the lively focus on village life was, and remains, the attraction of the website for its users.
We could not have achieved this without your support and the skill of the design team who provide the expertise to deliver what we need. Thank you all.
Inevitably there are costs and as well as thanking our current supporters we would like to offer the opportunity to others to sponsor our website for the coming year and help us develop a programme of events in the village to raise awareness of what the website can offer and broaden the use of the site across all age groups.
Would you be willing to continue as a sponsor or offer new sponsorship?
The cost is £15 p.a. which includes:
· a listing in the Directory for village organisations
· a highlighted display on our key pages and
· a link to your own website if needed.
The small website team remains committed to its original vision of ‘ by villagers, for villagers’ and relies on its supporters to help deliver that vision. If you would be interested in joining the team do let us know.
