The South Marston Website now has a new permanent address:
Please update your bookmarks to use this new address.
You may ask why the website needed to change its address. When the previous website was setup using UKVillages.co.uk, the domain name: southmarston.co.uk, was purchased on the villages behalf by UK Villages. Therefore the domain is registered in UK Villages name rather than in the name of South Marston. It is not possible for us to change the domain name mapping without the consent of UK Villages.
Since the website crash, UK Villages have been very unresponsive to any requests from the parish council to transfer the southmarston.co.uk domain to the village. As this situation does not look likely to be resolved anytime soon, the decision was made to purchase the new domain and remove our dependency upon UKVillages.co.uk.
Can I also take this opportunity to recommend that you subscribe for email updates. This feature means that if there are any new posts published on the website, you will automatically receive an email newsletter within 24 hours detailing the new posts. In this way you can be guaranteed not to miss out on any of the updates to the website, and stay informed about what is happening in the village.
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the website, then please feel free to drop me an email.
