Inside a Church with Google?

Recently Google have launched a new product which I am very excited about. If you know Google Streetview then this new venture brings ‘streetview’ inside a building or business. A natural progression from Google in my opinion as this really allows you to explore the interiors as if you were there. I have recently been awarded Google Business Photos status for Leicestershire & Rutland after meeting their strict criteria and passing a multitude of tests and I will be pursuing this great new service with many commercial clients...

Good TV at Last!

I do not watch much TV if the truth be known, firstly I do not have much time for it these days and there seems to be so much nonsense on I have given up. I do of course have a passion for documentaries and although there are perhaps one or two I may take a interest in at the moment there are three great series. Now I must admit that I have been catching up with them on BBC Iplayer and I can recommend the following; Robert Bartlett’s documentary ‘Inside the Medieval Mind’ has been a pure delight, intelligent writing and well...

New Design Launched

Well here we are in Mid October and the new site is starting to take shape. We have our basic design in place and can now start moving content across from the old platform into the new site. It will take time, but we hope to add content as we move forward towards the New Year. We do have issues with some of the ‘interactive elements’ and these are having to be re-written for the new platform but this move guarantees the long term future of the site and will be far easier to upgrade in future. There are also exciting features we...
