The Carterton Community Centre is a local meeting place for the residents of the Shilton Park development in Carterton.
To coincide with its completion in 2008 an initial website was commissioned as a central focus for the centre online.
Built with no end-user access meant any time the site needed updating it required the original web developer to complete the update.
Two years on and the Centre is now flourishing with daily activities and a real buzz of excitement.
With the website out of step with the centre, prompted its management team to look for a new solution.
By visually updating the feel and redeveloping the site as a CMS, has meant real freedom for the centre in terms of where they can take the website online.
Built into the supplied solution is the ability to add open source Plugins and with its integrated blog means the centre now has new and exciting ways to promote the activities online.
Choosing Websites by Mark for the development has also bought other advantages including rapid indexing on Google as well as other vital business-related tools.
As with any project keeping to the budget is important and with the website we were able not only to keep the site in the budget but also hit all the required deadlines.
Gill, Manager at the centre had this to say about the new site ‘As I’m sure you know by now the website was received well by everyone. I love it as you know – so much more interesting, modern & hopefully will become a hub where everyone will go to for the latest info on what’s on etc!’
