Hi all,

Basically, I'm looking at upgrading my ward website (http://www.walkdenconservatives.co.uk/) to something that looks slightly more professional and user-friendly.

The sort of thing I'm after is similar to this site (http://www.abbeymeadsintouch.com/). I know the company behind that site, but whilst it'd be a model of convenience and it's an excellent site, the prices TB Marketing charge (even after a substantial discount) are far removed from what is actually on offer.

So, I don't really know where to go. Any (sensible) suggestions?

That's the 'after' picture?

How about the Stewart Spink Civ site as a model? The one with the challenges and all.

According to your website you only launched the site in April. Isn't it a bit early to do a redesign, especially if you're going to be spending Conservative party money?

I'd offer to help, but I'm not interested in doing anything party political, sorry. ;)

I'll be spending my own money if there's money to be spent. As for a redesign, the original site was only rushed out for the elections, and it's an utter pain to update. As we have two sitting councillors I think it's only right that there is a professional-looking, regularly updated site.

I might get excommunicated if I was found to be helping you...;)

According to the results 3 councillors were elected for your ward. I didn't see anything about the 3 of you wanting to woprk together for the betterment of your constituents. :hmm:

The remaining Labour councillor is the Mayor this year. I don't imagine he'll have any time to do much in the ward for the next 12 months, regardless of whether he wants to work together or not.

If it makes you feel any better, however, I'll be contacting Stan as soon as I've sorted out surgery times and places. As Mayor he won't be able to hold surgeries, I'm told, so it's only fair to pass on details of anyone who might want to speak to a Labour councillor. Only four years until they're deprived of that option for good. :D
