Noble Digital has worked with Stourport Forward, a not for profit company, to update the Stourport Town website, stourporttown.co.uk, in a bid to support local businesses and encourage people to visit the town. Businesses will be able to add their details to a town directory and manage their own listings.
The successful Stourport Town website has been run by Stourport Forward since it was launched in 2010 and has weekly views of around 6,000 people interested in the town. Visitors can find out about places to visit, where to stay, what shops are in town and what events are on in town.
Noble Managing Director Larry Brangwyn commented:
“We believe websites can be better and are always looking for ways in which we can raise the expectations people have in community websites such as Stourport Town. By leveraging technology to help organisations and individuals manage their own content on the website, it is more likely that the information presented will remain an up-to-date and relevant resource for residents and visitors alike.”
Stourport Forward’s Chairman, David Willetts said:
“We know how tough it has been for local businesses during the pandemic. Just as our businesses have got going again, we’re back into lockdown. We wanted local people to have the opportunity to showcase their businesses, so that potential visitors to the town will be able to see what’s on offer.”
Russell Hinton from Manton’s of Stourport, Jeweller and goldsmiths, commented:
“2020 has been a difficult year. We had months of shut-down – but many businesses used the opportunity to refresh their offer and come back looking good when we were able to re-open. Business picked up nicely in the summer, as holidaymakers tentatively came back to the town for a day out or summer break.
Now we’re in lockdown once again, it’s hard to know what to do next – but we can do our best to promote the town, so that we’re ready for visitors again before Christmas. People are fed up of the doom and gloom, and are looking forward to some Christmas Cheer.”
Businesses and groups wishing to put their details onto the website can register themselves, or contact Eliza and Nikki at Stourport Forward via: firstname.lastname@example.org. The website will go live from Tuesday 17th November.
Stourport Forward can also help businesses to put their details together for the website and have a limited number of slots with a photographer available before Christmas. Their photographer will visit to take pictures of your business free of charge. (Please note, normal social distancing practices will apply).
