St Peter Port parish website launched
Submarine have successfully designed and developed a new agile, secure and easily managed website for Guernsey's largest local parish, St Peter Port.
The requirement was for a functional information website with a focus on the latest news and local events. This was largely achieved through a logical site plan and navigation menu with latest news items presented dynamically on the home page - created and driven by the content management system (CMS). This was supported with an archive of the parish insight magazine, The Townie, presented in web friendly, small file size PDFs.
Fast loading pages, a clean layout with good contrast and clear use of language were priorities for none technical users, older citizens and foreign visitors / workers. The tone was approachable and professional with an emphasis on promoting the parish, and within a budget that offered excellent value for the community.
Self-managed... with support on call
A key factor in the website development, was the capability for admin staff from the parish team to maintain content on-going for expediency and to reduce rolling costs. This was achieved with a custom CMS configuration secured under SSL. The parish admin team took up the option of a monthly retainer for flexible on call support which includes image pre-flight, general requests and security patching.
The parish were supported in their endeavour with photographs from Chris George, the well known Guernsey professional who is the primary contributor of official island images to Visit Guernsey. In the case of the parish, we briefed him to include unusual perspectives highlighting lesser known parish views rather than the traditional harbour postcards.
