Pixelwave Web Design has recently started work on an exciting new project for various local village communities.
Village Community Website Design
As part of the Pentir Pumlumon initiative, various community councils in the The North Ceredigion uplands are having their online presence improved. The North Ceredigion Uploads covers an area around the top ends of Rheidol and Ystwyth Valleys and includes the villages of Capel Bangor, Cwm Rheidol, Goginan, Ponterwyd, Devil’s Bridge, Cwm Ystwyth, Pontrhydygroes, Ysbyty Ystwyth, Ffair Rhos, Pontrhydfendigaid, Ystrad Meurig, Lledrod, Llanilar, Llanafan and surrounding countryside.
Some of the community councils here have had websites in the past, but they have become out of date and are rarely updated. Those that are joining the new project will have new Content Management System based websites that will be easy to update and maintain and therefore hopefully the content will remain relevant and of use to visitors at all times. As part of the website build process Pixelwave Web Design will be providing tuition and support in use of the CMS to the various councillors to help with the process of keeping the websites up to date. Pixelwave Web Design will also provide ongoing support.
The websites themselves will be simple affairs in order to quickly and easily display the information that members of these communities need to access. This will also ensure that the website are easy to use for both the website visitors and the websites administrators and editors too. All sites within the project will have a similar look and feel to provide consistency between them and to aid collaboration between the various village communities.
The villages signed up to the project so far are Devils’ Bridge, Trawsgoed and Ponterwyd. Their new websites should go live soon, and hopefully others will be joining them in the future
