I just had to let you know that I have had some feedback from friends who have now looked at
the website to enjoy my moment of fame
(artist of the month) and all have mentioned the high
quality of the website and what an asset to the village it is.  It certainly is extremely well put
together and gives a wonderful overview of the parish.  Thank you for putting so much effort
and time into it.

"I have just been browsing your excellent website.  It is the best parish site I have come across. It must be hard work keeping on top of updating all that information
Ivor Rackam

"Just had my cup of coffee in the office and logged onto the parish website, beats reading any magazine, great job as always John.
Many Thanks"

Maureen Ledger

"Wow John - I have just been in and had a look - fab site, one of the best I've looked at so far.
There seems to be a lot of talented people in your village.
Well Done"

"Great website, I found it really interesting, do hope people will continue to contribute and help it grow.
One area which possibly has some restrictions, so please forgive me if you have 'explored', would be visitors accommodation in your village. For instance there may be farms nearby who due to the economy found themselves forced to diversify! We have family in Acklington and I was hoping to find local B&B's in the village....just a thought.
Best wishes"

"We were looking at the parish website to see what was written about the Indian Evening and were reminded what a great job you do with that website. It really showcases the village activities and is very professional looking."
