I'm obsessed with helping people and communities. I moved to Appleby-in-Westmorland in August 2017 having fallen in love with its generous heart, beautiful architecture and stunning countryside. I realised that the town and its surrounding villages were not getting the attention they deserve, so I started the town's website to serve the residents, traders, artisans and visitors.

Somewhat naively I thought the work involved would be rather less consuming than it is and the costs involved travelling around the valley, making calls and paying for the technical platforms I need to do the job well.

I hope my work at www.appleby-in-westmorland.org helps people find what they need so they can discover and enjoy this beautiful valley.

If you do decide to support this work, as a patreon your picture or business logo, with a link to your website or social media account, will appear on the website's patreon page. The patreon page will be (is, when we get going) promoted on the website so others will see your support for this project.

I'm working on a dinosaur of a laptop running XP and using free but limited HTML publishing tools. I need to upgrade to be able to properly serve mobile users and make the town's website that bit more professional. That means using Adobe Creative Cloud tools. To use the Adobe tools I need to upgrade my PC, albeit 2nd hand. That will cost about £500 ($700) for the PC and £50 ($70)/month for the Adobe license.

Any extra income will go towards the cost of telephone calls, keeping the website on the server, petrol (gas) for my car and other things that empty my pockets while supporting the community.
