Dec 8


Just over a year ago I asked for help updating The Advice & Community Hub website. At the time there was no budget and I was very conscious that I was asking a big favour. I made it clear that I wanted to do most of the work myself and would manage the website going forward. I was looking to ‘borrow’ someone for quite a while, ask them loads of questions, and basically download and take away for free their knowledge and experience of website design, development and management.

C21web offered their time, extensive knowledge and experience, and many cups of tea. And all for free. I had no previous experience of working on websites, and from their base in Norman Road, St Leonards, and with admirable and considerable patience, they guided, educated and supported me.

This post is our way of saying a big and very public thank you to C21web. They have been incredibly supportive and generous and we really couldn’t have done it without them.

Thank You
