Another Rockpool Website!

Another Rockpool Website!

We’re delighted to have worked with another local business, Fowey’s very own Self Drive Boat Hire, run by Steve Langmaid. Steve came to us to deliver a new website that would attract families – the bulk of his business – in a simple yet effective way. We played to the postcard-feel of the images with this slider-based site that tells the user everything they need to know, in an appealing, characterful manner. Steve was up and running on our hosting in less than a week, optimised for all browsing devices, and is, we’re proud to report, delighted with the results. Next stop for Rockpool Websites – Fowey Aquarium. Can’t...
Latest Web Launch!

Latest Web Launch!

We’ve been delighted to be working with the wonderful organisation, Parent Carer Council for Cornwall, building their new website which we proudly launched this morning, as well as providing ongoing media and PR support to help them raise their profile. You can see the new website here and view our web-build Portfolio here. Next up for Rockpool Websites is the completion of the database-driven WordPress site for Cornwall’s Finest Parks, then on to Fowey Aquarium, to build their first ever website. On the PR and Media side we’re currently also enjoying working with the Cornwall Community Foundation and Safer Stronger Cornwall. Meanwhile, once the tech support people have fixed a technical glitch in Love Fowey’s GeoPlaces WordPress theme, we’ll be launching the new-look Love Fowey website, packed with new features and a sexy new slideshow. It’s all go. Which is how we like...

The floods of Fowey

It  was pretty scary out there in Fowey last week. Driving down into town around 7pm, the branches falling from the trees on the main hill made it a hairy experience. Finally holed up at home around 8pm, we nervously prepared for the long wait for high tide at 9pm. A few measly sandbags were all that protected us from the wrath of the sea and wind outside. Would they last? The water rising in the alley outside our house told us ‘nope – absolutely no chance’. We thought it would probably be wise to move the car from Albert Quay, and on putting the wee on to bed the lights started to flicker. Social media was reporting blackouts in Par and Bodmin so we did get a wee bit jittery, at the thought of rising water in the dark, Around 8.30pm – 33 minutes to go – the water started sneaking round the tiny gaps in the door. Time for Plan B. Operation Towels at Door commenced. At this point the wee one wandered downstairs, unable to sleep and started asking for pens (no sense of priority that one) Peering out the door didn’t help any, but it was impossible not to. And every big wave crashing through the door at the end made us fearful. But it was when we saw the kayaks and the outdoor bench go for a little float down the alley that we knew things were serious. A few bits and piece we’d not seen for ages started bobbing around too (ah, that’s where that plastic pitcher went, that we’ve never actually used)...
