South Downs Village Shop and Tea Room is Web Site of the Month for June

The South Downs Village Shop and Tea Room opened in April 2009 to serve the local population of Compton, West Sussex with a shop and tea room and also to provide rest and refreshment for passing walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

Fulfilling a real local need, the shop has become a popular ammenity and was nominated by its customers for a Countryside Alliance Award, winning the south-east region award for the best village shop.

The web site provides information about the shop and also about the local area, including walks and photographs.

SiteWeave are delighted with the success of the web site and the shop and wish all the staff and customers well.

New artist joins Watershed Galleries

Watershed Galleries is SiteWeave's on-line gallery for artists in the south of England. Artists can start with three pages on the site:

  • About Page: giving information about the artist, their training, experience and exhibitions
  • Current Exhibits: displaying up to five art works with details including prices
  • Contact Page: showing contact details and location
People visiting the site can browse through the exhibits and then contact the artist directly.

The cost of the initial three pages is £100.00 per year and additional pages can be created for £45.00 each.

The new artist is Gaynor Williams who is a bookbinder, working from a workshop just outside Petersfield in Hampshire.

Watershed Galleries was set up by SiteWeave Internet Services LLP to support artists by providing an Internet presence without large initial setup costs. In addition to this cost saving, by being part of an online community individual artists benefit from sharing a large web site which is effectively optimised for search engine ranking.
