How we started:
PenarthTown.co.uk was first just another idea of my Dad's, when in
1997 he suggested to me that I created a website about Penarth,
providing local information, photos and a business directory. It looked
a promising business opportunity, but at that time however I was busy
with school studies and my Dad was working as an IT contractor
On 14th June 2000 PenarthTown.co.uk was finally started
by myself and was launched on 24th July 2000 with my web design business
Penarth Online. At that time only received 100 visitors a day with the
help of local publicity in the Penarth Times later that August.
Since then the site has significantly moved on, with many
developments and improvements to get it where it is today. We are
constantly receiving an increasing number of visitors, which has now
totaled an excess of 100,000 hits!
Much of this has been the result of continued improvements and
updates and the sheer fact and local knowledge that this is a Penarth
based website, unlike many other template websites based elsewhere (even the so
called local paper is based in Newport!). Also much credit is due to the
organisations and individuals who have helped out in providing
information for the site and continue to do so (feel free to email me
with any info you would like on the site!).
The site is mainly funded by myself, as well as advertisers and
local sponsors. Obviously the more people continue to contribute and visit the more this
site will grow and benefit the local community.
I hope you've enjoyed visiting the site, as I and the rest of the
PenarthTown.co.uk team have creating it.
