Welcome to Sandy Community Website.

Here, we hope you will find information about Sandy and the local area, including links to other local sites, businesses, attractions and community groups. In addition, through our 'Useful Links' pages, we have put together a whole stack of information, which will we are sure, prove....useful!


Our Mission - is to provide as much local information as possible to those who visit this site in search of facts and details about Sandy, its' citizens, history and facilities as possible. As with other community based sites, we rely on local groups and organisations to keep us updated with news of events, changes in personnel, location or timings. For non-profit organisations and clubs, the information is posted free and so there is no excuse for out-of-date facts and figures that are no use to anyone. It is easy to get your information on to the site - just email us with your details and we will do the rest.


If you have information about forthcoming events in and around Sandy that includes a poster - just scan it and email it and we will put it on the site. (alternatively, you can pop a copy - A4 maximum size please - through the Webmaster's letter box and it will be scanned here). Please remember that it sometimes takes a day or two for information to appear on the site, so you should allow 2-3 weeks minimum advanced notice of your event - the longer the better!

Although we accept advertising on the site, we regard it as support and sponsorship of the Sandy Community Website and all proceeds go towards the upkeep and development of the website. So local sponsorship is important to us as it encourages community spirit. Click here to view our current Local Sponsoring Businesses. So, if you are out there and think you can help as well as benefit, please email us and we will assist you in getting the most appropriate information on to the site.

For those of you out there who run small (or even larger) businesses, we will place your information in our Sandy Local Business pages for a small annual fee. (currently ranging from £10 - £35 maximum depending on the level of placement - see our instructions on how to Sponsor Sandy Community Website page for more details). As we get more than 200 visitors every day of the year and due to our 11 years online with very high Google™ rankings, your business listing will get valuable exposure. Better still, if you are a local company offering goods and services in and around the Sandy Bedfordshire area, a listing here will increase enquiries and potential business quite significantly.

We have replaced the Site News page with a Blog. You can read comments and posts by others but you need to register before commenting or posting to the Sandy Community Website blog. Please note however, that spammers and and those intent on selling porn or other inappropriate material, are not allowed on the Blog site.


Finally,although we do try to keep up to date as much as possible, we have introduced a Local Search facility, via Google™, so that where there is local information about businesses, hotels and so on in the search results provided by Google™, then links to the information will appear. We have also a number of useful links pages, which ranges from travel news to government information sites.

NB:
Sandy Community Website is changing! We will be revamping our site to take account of the ever growing percentage of visitors who access our site using mobile devices, such as iPods & iPads, Tablets and other such devices. To this extent, we need to make our website more 'responsive' in order to recognise when these devices are looking at us.

It won't fundamentally affect the 'desktop' version, in fact, apart from some re-design elements, which would form part of any site revamp, you won't notice any difference when viewing via your destop or laptop pc. The changes will however, make it much easier to read the site content on your mobile device. We want your user experience to be as enriched as possible when viewing on your mobile device and so we will be looking at the best way to achieve this change without losing the overall look and feel.

Finally, as there have been a number of local developments in recent months, mainly relating to
Sandy Town Council's website upgrade, which includes much more information about community groups, tourism and local events, we are closing the Community Groups and What's On sections of our site - it seems something of a duplication to us in having two sources of the same information, some of which may be more up-to-date than on here..

We are retaining however, our history pages, local links and most of the 'static' information (i.e. that which changes only very infrequently or not at all). What we will do, is put in more links to the useful information provided by local and national services, so that when you are seeking train & bus timetables relating to the local area, your click will take you straight to the relevent page, saving time and effort on your part in having to wade trhough masses of irrelevant details.

Over the next few months or so, the proposed changes will come into effect. With regard to the sections being closed, we will be putting in links to the relevant sites that now carry this information, so you won't be left high an dry!

Advertising and sponsorship is still very welcome - we get lots of visitors every day of the year, wanting to find out more about Sandy and the local area, so it is going to remain a cost effective way to get your message across.
