Community website to close!

For the past 10 years Hamilton Davies Trust (HDT) have supported Irlam & Cadishead and Rixton-with-Glazebrook with two community websites www.irlamandcadishead.net and www.rixtonwithglazebrook.net

Over the years,  the way groups communicate and share news and events has changed dramatically, especially with the arrival of social media and Facebook in particular. Last year we monitored and reviewed the analytics re usage of both websites and found that visits to these websites had reduced significantly. Based on the results and given the cost in terms of hosting and the staff time it takes to manage and update the websites, we have made the decision to close both sites as from 29th February 2020.

We apologise if this causes an inconvenience to some community groups and the small number of users, but feel this is a necessary step to take.

The HDT website www.hamiltondavies.org.uk will remain open and this, along with our Facebook page will continue to support and promote the great work of the community.
