Upper Newton Farmhouse – a new SBC venue

Preparing for our workshop at Upper Newton Farm

Catherine and Mandy preparing for the workshop at Upper Newton Farm

Our first workshop at Upper Newton Farmhouse, Kinnersley was held on 10th July 2014. Entitled “How to get your website found” it attracted a full house of small businesses from around Herefordshire.

The workshop concentrated on how to create a website that will do well in the search engine rankings as well as appealing to customers. There was lots of discussion and exchange of ideas.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming Humphrey Clements of Healing Rose Therapies to the workshop. Humphrey has been blind since birth and was able to bring his screen reader along. We were able to put attendees’ websites through this so that they could see how their sites fared. As the same website attributes is used by search engines to rank sites, this was a good test for the sites. Thank you, Humphrey!

Thank you too to Pearl Taylor for hosting the event in her wonderful farmhouse – a lovely place to hold a business workshop. We hope to do more workshops there in the near future.
