St Erth Parish Council reaches out to the on-line community
St Erth Parish Council has just launched its own dedicated website at www.sterth-pc.gov.uk which is compatible with smart phones and tablet devices like iPads.
Parish Council Chairman, Councillor Ted Taylor, said that “less than a year ago, it was only an aspiration for the Council to have its own website and I’m so pleased that this is now a reality. Our new website offers different ways to communicate, such as Twitter and Facebook which will allow us to engage much more effectively.”
He continued that “I’m really proud of what we have achieved, working alongside our website developers – Sea Dog IT – who are based in Cornwall.”
Former Parish Councillor Angelo Spencer-Smith, who had a lead role in the website’s development, commented that “The Council’s new website will compliment other ways in which we communicate, such as the Notice Board, mail shots and the ‘Down Your Way’ column in the Cornishman – but the key difference will be its inter-activity.”
He added that “Local people are discussing important issues on-line and it is essential that the Council is able to take part in those discussions so that together, we are able to make the best decisions for everyone.”
Parish Clerk, Peter Rylett added that “Relying solely on a Notice Board to communicate with everyone in the Parish was a little over-optimistic and so I’m really pleased that the Council’s own website is now operational. We will be adding more information over the coming weeks and would welcome feedback from visitors to the site so that we can continue to improve its usefulness.”
