DOGSITTING

Is there anyone in the village available or willing to do short term/short notice dogsitting? (Paid of course!) Over the next year or so, we think we will need to make a few last minute trips away - only for 2-4 days at a time, but we may not know until the day and therefore can't predict whether kennels will be available. Elderly, slightly scruffy, long-haired jack russell terrier, she likes company - It would be nice to know that she had someone local to look after her and give her the odd walk!

New Village Website Now Live

It's taken me a month and finally the new village website is up and running! We now have a fully responsive mobile first design. Put simply, mobile first is an approach to design for smaller screens first, as close to 50% of visitors to websites are using portable devices these days.

I have yet to do the blog pages, (Village News, Church News and History) but plan to do so over the next couple of weeks.

All of you that had adverts on the old site have had them re-vamped for this one. Be sure to check out your ad, make sure it's all correct and up to date and that you like it! If there is anything you would like changed or added please just let me know.

I have included all the businesses I know of, please don't shoot me if I have left you out, it wasn't on purpose. If you have a business and you would like it included just let me know.

In response to a couple of "you must be making a bomb out of that website" comments I have had, I can assure you all that I am not. In fact the website costs me money. I pay for the domain name and the hosting and do all the design work and running of it myself. There are some Google ads on the village news, history and church pages which I have received two payments of £60 for since 2009 and that's it.

Lastly, if anyone wants to contribute to the running of the website, whether it be financially or otherwise it would be gratefully accepted. Andrea does a great job helping me with Facebook, thank you Andrea. I have lots of information on shipwrecks that I just haven't had the time to get written up, plus I don't know one end of a ship from the other! Many people have contacted me with regards to family history so again, anyone willing to handle that side of things? None of it would involve any design work, just writing things up and maybe answering emails and replying to comments!?

Right, that's enough of me rambling on. Check the new site out, let me know what you think. As always, comments and suggestions more than welcome.

Thanks for reading

Perranuthnoes Twitter Handle And Website

Twitter Handle


You may or may not be aware that our twitter handle (@perranuthnoe) was taken by someone unconnected with the village so I had to settle for @perrantweets when I first set up a Twitter account for us. This made tagging or mentioning Perranuthnoe in Tweets difficult for people.

I have kept my eye on the 'other' account ever since, periodically checking in to see if it was being used.

A few weeks ago I decided to do something about it as the account hadn't been used since September 2014 and felt this was a fair amount of time to elapse. I wrote to Twitter asking them if I could claim the handle @perranuthnoe as our own as it was no longer in use.

I am now delighted to announce that Twitter agreed to transfer the name to us! The process is now complete and we can now be found at https://twitter.com/perranuthnoe

Website News


I am also in the process of redesigning our website, bringing it up to date with modern technology, making it mobile friendly, getting rid of out of date links etc.

Anyone with a business in the village who would like to be included please let me know.

Anyone with existing adverts on the site now is a good time to send me any updated images or wording although I will be checking your websites for newer images anyway.

As always, any comments or suggestions will be gratefully received. Please use the contact form on our website

I apologise for this taking so long for me to get around to, I lost my mojo after my dad died but I am pleased to say I have it back now. Watch this space!

Happy days :-)
