Strong communities are formed by people joining together with a common interest. Promotion, marketing and funding are always issues which restrict community based activities, so Sarumbear became involved with one of the local football clubs.
Sarumbear offered to host a new website for the club and provide designs for print materials and advertisements, aiming to secure sponsorship for the nascent team and provide a marketing platform for sponsors, many of whom are small businesses or individuals and looking to connect with the local community. The CMS based website is ideal for the club as they are able to easily update the site with news, fixtures, results and photographs. The links to social media allow the players and their friends to build traffic to the site via Facebook and Twitter and a web-application for mobile devices including iPhone and iPad allows users to have the latest results and information at their fingertips, wherever they are.
The project has snowballed to include the entire community in Wilton and now features sections for the Town itself, the annual Wilton Community Carnival, Wilton Chamber of Commerce and the Wilton Mayor’s office and Wilton House. It has become the Go-To resource for tourist information about Wilton and the surrounding area with attractions such as the Nadder and Wyle valleys.
