Have a nosy around more of our websites

“It has been a pleasure to work with Clare, Websites Ahoy, creating a website for our recently formed charitable trust. I’m sure that we have not been the easiest client, the chairman not being very technically competent but her patience, common sense, design and computer skills have prevailed, which has resulted in a website with which all the trustees are very pleased. The initial reaction from a wide range of stakeholders is extremely positive. She has managed to reflect the trust’s vision and values and help position our charity to its numerous audiences in an exciting way. Big thanks are due.” — Bryan Brown, Chair of Trustees, Abingdon Abbey Buildings

“Clare, you are a legend, and can I just say what a pleasure it has been to work with you throughout this process! You have tolerated our dithering, responded promptly to our pleas, bullied us (very gently!) into going the second mile, and just made the site look really professional!” — SR, Committee Member

“It has been a total ‘tour de force’ from you and very much appreciated. I am really proud of our new website.” — DC, Committee Member

“Thanks Clare for your patience, flexibility and expertise in helping us to create our new website. Our requirements were fiddly and complex, and you helped us work through them all to get the best results for us. We have had some very appreciative feedback from people about the website, commenting on how clear it is and we are thrilled with it.” — Lynn Wetenhall, Trustee, Food Exeter

“I really, really like what you do with Websites Ahoy! The fact that you cycle and use sustainable/ethical resources, and that you donate a few hours a month for charities. So much more caring than so many others. Great stuff!” — CE, Abingdon Carbon Cutters
