This website is organised by Ayton Community
Council. We welcome feedback on the site's design and
and content. If you have any text or photographs or old
postcards you would like to share via the website (either attributed
or anonymously) we would be delighted to hear from you.
The Community Council was aware that the village lacked a shop
window to the world, so in 2007 it was decided that a community web
portal should be established to help promote the village to the
outside world. The website
was developed with the assistance of
Shand Online Solutions
Ltd as a community project, run by Community Councillors, with
the aim that it would become self-sustaining. We are grateful for Lorna Wheelhouse's
support in delivering the site and for her ongoing help and advice
when it's needed.
It is intended that this website will help local
residents and visitors alike to find out about the history of the area
along with all
that is going on locally: for example local clubs and societies and the local cultural scene. Do let us know of any clubs we
have not listed and we will include you on the site. Also, if office
bearers or contacts change, please inform us as soon as possible so we
can update our pages.
A key objective is to ensure that local businesses can make
potential customers aware of all that they have to offer. We will
list any local business free of charge and will link to any website
businesses website - all we ask is that you do likewise for
Graham Dolan who maintains
the website for Ayton Community Council and Paul Wheelhouse who
helped set it up.
