“The award was especially gratifying for the council as it had a brand new website commissioned 18 months ago.
“The old one had some information but it wasn’t very exciting and it was difficult for us to update so we started again and tried to take into account off of the things that we needed, such as meetings and a calendar of village events.
“The website is really for the whole community rather than just an update of what the parish council is doing.”
