Beaminster launches brand new community website
Beaminster, 16 March 2013
Beaminster businesses and residents are proud to announce the launch of a brand new community website. After a year of challenges within the community, a group of businesses and residents grouped together to launch ideas that would promote Beaminster as the idyllic place to visit as well as promote the local services and suppliers to local residents.
With the first launch of the Be Local, Buy Local, Buy in Beaminster campaign, all businesses in Beaminster were encouraged to get involved in a promotion of the town’s services and supplies and the awareness of all that the town offers. All businesses were encouraged to put the Be Local, Buy Local posters in shop windows and a social media campaign was launched.
Following on from the success of the campaign launch, the group then got together to develop the town’s first community website. Recognising the need to have a central portal which local residents and businesses, as well as visitors, could access in order to obtain useful information about the history of the town, the businesses, events, town news, important links to other key organisations such as the Beaminster & District Business Chamber, the Beaminster Town Council and the Yarn Barton Centre.
The Beaminster Community Website also provides access to places to eat, drink and stay as well as various campaigns running throughout the town which people can become more involved in.
The launch of the website will be done mainly via Social Media, as well as via press and community notice boards. The Beaminster Community Website can be found at www.beaminster.net.
