Paul Holmes, the Club’s Chairman, and Carole Manning, the Communications Officer, approached bluebox for a new website after realising their current site was no longer fit for purpose.
In addition, Paul was conscious that the old site did not render well on mobile & tablet devices. He was worried this, along with the other issues with the site, was putting off potential members.
As Paul himself recalls;
The old site was really showing its age and wasn’t very easy to update. The site also lacked an event calendar, a major flaw given that we are very active on this front.
After an initial meeting between us, Paul and Carole, we decided to build the Club’s site using the WordPress Platform.
We chose WordPress for three main reasons.
Over the course of the Site’s development, we worked with members of the Committee and the Club’s wider membership to ensure we delivered a website that reflected the Club’s ethos.
The key deliverables are:
We are delighted that the website has been very warmly received by the Club’s members. The ease of adding and changing content on the site has also been appreciated by members of the Committee.
Paul Holmes says of the new site;
We're all very happy with the look and feel of the new site. Not only does it show the club in a more professional light, we have total control over managing the content, which is so important to us. We can now be fully reactive to changes and keep the site updated internally.
