We did it
On 6th September 2018 we successfully raised £220 with 3 supporters in 56 days

• managed by a small group of volunteers for the benefit of the residents of the village of Lerryn and the surrounding area

• aim to strengthen and develop the real sense of community which already exists by reaching out to those who live in the more isolated areas of our area, including those who are home bound

• enable those who have moved away from the area, including those who have moved abroad, to keep in touch with news of their friends and families 

• promote the educational, artistic, cultural and social life of our area as well as providing a ‘shop front’ for local businesses 

• publish and stores today's news and information, creating over time an archive for future generations 

• proudly host our Village Archive - a photographic record which spans the years 1890 to the present day 

• The website has been running very successfully for ten years, but must now adapt to current technology – including the increasing use of mobile devices. lerryn.net needs: 

• a Content Management System which is accessible and easy to use, so that more people can upload their own text, photos and posters, ensuring a more sustainable operational model 

• a Content Management System which gives us the power to change words and images on our site as necessary without running up additional maintenance costs 

• a responsive design for users visiting the website on their tablets or mobile phones 

• to meet the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and XTHML standards of the World Wide Web Consortium To do this, we need to raise the £2,400 it will cost for the re-design of our website.
