Website Reconstruction 02

Haddenham.net has been serving the village in its present format for a little over four years, and the time has come to refresh its look and feel.

In particular, we are keen to provide a format that is much more user-friendly for those who choose to access the community website via their mobile phone — an increasingly popular method.

As things currently stand, Haddenham.net appears on smart phones as a very small version of each page and users typically have to expand the view with finger gestures (polite ones!) to access the sections they wish to view in more detail.

After the redesign is complete, we hope to offer a much more mobile-friendly version.

Meanwhile, for those accessing the community website via a personal computer, laptop, etc, the page design should look brighter, fresher and easier to navigate.

The work has been going on behind the scenes for several weeks, and given the substantial back-catalogue of news items and the vast number of images that we have amassed in the last four years, the redesign and reconstruction of Haddenham.net has not been a small undertaking.

If all goes according to plan, the final transfer process of Haddenham.net to its new format will take place this coming Friday, 7th October 2016.

During that day visitors to the community website will be greeted by a simple holding page only. This will be true for about 24 hours and, with fingers, toes and various other items crossed, we hope to be back up and running once again, with out new design in full flow, by Saturday 8th October.

Thank you for your patience during the technical completion phase.
