Nailsea Town Council has launched a new website to promote the town and its events and link people with community groups.

NailseaTown.com went live last yesterday (Thursday) and will act as an online hub to showcase all the town has to offer, from history groups and societies to its skate park, sports groups and future events.

Town council chairman David Packham said: “NailseaTown.com will serve as a central resource of information for residents and visitors of the town, where they can find out about the diverse range of events and organisations that take place in Nailsea, and promote their own events, sports and community groups and businesses.

“It’s great to see that more than 150 Nailsea-based organisations have already got involved in the project, with many offering amazing raffle prizes to be won as part of the launch campaign on social media.”

He added: “Throughout the project, we uncovered some incredible bits of history from the Women’s Institute (WI) in very fragile books, that have now been digitised and will be for the first time accessible publicly on the new website.

“It’s just one example of how valuable the new website will be for making information more accessible for the whole community.”

The website aims to involve all groups, businesses and communities in Nailsea who want to benefit from an improved digital presence for the town.

The council has been working with digital design and marketing agency, Squarebird, to launch the site.

Town council clerk Ian Morrell said: “We are delighted to see NailseaTown.com has gone live. The project initially began to refresh the town council’s website but it has been expanded far beyond the original remit and we have Nailsea-based Squarebird to thank for producing a website for the whole town which we hope residents will not only find useful but will get involved with.”

The launch complements Number 65 High Street, which was opened by Nailsea Town Council in October to help people to improve their digital skills.

A number of prizes are up for grabs on the website including a family kayaking trip and a luxury Italian hamper, courtesy of Nailsea businesses. For details visit www.nailseatown.com and facebook.com/nailseatown
