New Village Website Now Live

It's taken me a month and finally the new village website is up and running! We now have a fully responsive mobile first design. Put simply, mobile first is an approach to design for smaller screens first, as close to 50% of visitors to websites are using portable devices these days.

I have yet to do the blog pages, (Village News, Church News and History) but plan to do so over the next couple of weeks.

All of you that had adverts on the old site have had them re-vamped for this one. Be sure to check out your ad, make sure it's all correct and up to date and that you like it! If there is anything you would like changed or added please just let me know.

I have included all the businesses I know of, please don't shoot me if I have left you out, it wasn't on purpose. If you have a business and you would like it included just let me know.

In response to a couple of "you must be making a bomb out of that website" comments I have had, I can assure you all that I am not. In fact the website costs me money. I pay for the domain name and the hosting and do all the design work and running of it myself. There are some Google ads on the village news, history and church pages which I have received two payments of £60 for since 2009 and that's it.

Lastly, if anyone wants to contribute to the running of the website, whether it be financially or otherwise it would be gratefully accepted. Andrea does a great job helping me with Facebook, thank you Andrea. I have lots of information on shipwrecks that I just haven't had the time to get written up, plus I don't know one end of a ship from the other! Many people have contacted me with regards to family history so again, anyone willing to handle that side of things? None of it would involve any design work, just writing things up and maybe answering emails and replying to comments!?

Right, that's enough of me rambling on. Check the new site out, let me know what you think. As always, comments and suggestions more than welcome.

Thanks for reading




  1. Hi Kay, looks good! I created a 3D virtual tour of the church earlier this year that would be great to see on the perranuthnoechurchhistory page. Let me have your email if you want an html frame code for it...
