Burmantofts is a purpose built nursery, offering full and part time care for children aged 6 months to 4 years inclusive, in Leeds.
Run by manager Karen, the nursery recently decided to create their first web site to advertise what they do to local parents and also offer a way to show off their lovely facilities.
Karen contacted us and asked if we could put together a design for their new site, which we did and after board approval, we moved ahead and started to build their new site.
The web site features some basic information at the moment but as the nursery develops, so too will the site. At the moment we are focussing on adding the basic information required by parents - fees, application forms, photo galleries - then we will add more as requests from parents come in.
The site is built on the latest version of the Joomla Content Management System meaning that the nursery team can log in at any point and make changes to the site if they would like to but of course, we are here to update the site if they are too busy.
Like all of our web site packages, we ensure that the site is updated with the latest software versions and protected with our firewall. We also take four backup copies of the site each day just-in-case there’s a problem. Whether you have a personal blog, business web site or nursery site - you can focus on the important things and let us take care of the web site for you.

Back in February we wrote about the Kent Classic Rallies web site which we developed for free to help launch the event.
We were really pleased to hear from Graham, the event organiser, last week who said that it was a huge success and they are hoping to run the event again next year.
Graham was kind enough to mention us in the article in the local paper as well, which you can see below.
We are extremely pleased and proud to announce the new tourist information site for Faversham, visitfaversham.org
The web site contains information on local attractions, places to stay, restaurants and events.
- What’s on - details of upcoming events that automatically unpublished from the web site when the event has finished
- Random features - each time the home page is loaded, a random accommodation, attraction and restaurant are displayed. This highlights perhaps unknown places to visitors and ensures that every business has equal chance of being seen
- Integrated MailChimp newsletter subscription
The site features over 20 places to stay, events and attractions. Each business listed is able to update their page during the year to ensure that they are displaying their latest prices, information and pictures.
The site has been built with SEO in mind, meaning that in time the site will start being listed high in the Google rankings when people are searching for information about Faversham.
The site also features a History section, detailing information about how the town came to be. There’s also a Walks section, which provides downloadable pdf guides of local walking routes.
Take a look at the new site by visiting visitfaversham.org
Russell runs SME Business Growth. Russell works with other businesses to help them grow by identifying gaps in the market, reducing costs and improving their marketing.
Russell asked us to take a look at his old web site, to see whether we could give it a boost in the search engine rankings. Unfortunately it was running an old version of WordPress so we suggested that an upgrade would be a better way investment, making his web site mobile friendly and it would allow Russell to work on the search engine optimisation of the site later on, if he wanted to.
Over the years, Russell had built up a large web site, consisting of hundreds of blog posts. These would provide a great source of content for Google to index and boost his site in the rankings however, moving them over from his old site to his new one looked like a difficult process.
We worked out a way to transfer all of his posts from his old WordPress site, over to his new Joomla-based site, quickly and easily. It was then simply a case of moving the rest of his content across.
After showing Russell the newly created site on our test server, we asked him to ensure everything was looking and working how he expected it to. We then made the new site live by moving it over to the live server for everyone to see.
If you are interested in what Russell might be able to do for your business or you'd just like to see his new site, please take a look here: www.smebusinessgrowth.co.uk
