Why are we doing this?
The idea for the website came when Paul Cripps, a local website designer and developer, heard the sad news that many independents had been forced to close their doors. Including The Globe pub, Newbury, a personal favourite thanks to its dog-friendly welcome.
The amount of effort and money people have put into their businesses is nothing short of amazing, and the recently fully refurbished Globe was a great case in point.
Paul felt there must be something he could do to give back, to help support local indies in these challenging times. A web designer for more than 20 years, he turned to what he does best, building websites that work. He then called in trusted specialists, and a few favours, to help get this website designed, built, launched and, as far as possible, future-proofed to be an asset for years to come.
Why did the rest of us do it? We all work for or own a local independent business, so we’re all in this together.
