Welcome to our News pages

We are now posting all news in a ‘blog’ format which should help us post updates and news on a regular basis. The post you’re reading now will always be at the top, – scroll down to read the latest posts. There are also links in the side-bar and from social media. You can also search for news by clicking on the category listings above this text.

About the new website

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

This will be the new website for the Gloucestershire Orchard Trust (GOT).  It is under construction at present – our existing website at gloucestershireorchardtrust.org.uk is the place to find information until this site is complete. Feel free to explore the structure, but please note that the content is not yet complete and there are editing notes on most pages. And there are not many pictures yet – but there will be many more soon.

We hope to have the new site up and running fairly well in time for our AGM on 29 April 2017. The aim is to split the current site into several sections, this main site describing GOT and what it does, with news, information on events and how to get involved.  We hope to build much stronger social media links as part of this.

Specialist websites

The sections in our current website on Fruit Varieties, Local Orchards and Orchard Advice will be rebuilt as subsites alongside the main site – these are also being built at present and available via the links below.  Note that these sites will take longer to build, so may not be ready before the end of April:

Navigation

Primary navigation for each website (the main one and the specialist ones) is via the menu below the logo at the top of the page. This will be a bar across the page on a wide screen or a drop-down on a smaller screen or phone. The menu above the logo has short-cut links to the various specialist sites and back to the main site.

The Side-bar

The side-bar will provide short-cuts and feeds to our blog, facebook, twiiter feeds etc – formatting is not yet finalised.

A note on the logo

We are currently reviewing our logo, so the websites you see under construction all use different variants at the moment, just to see how they work.

The OrchardMarketplace website

The future of the Marketplace website, currently managed by GOT at https://orchardmarketplace.org.uk/ in association with the Orchard Network is under review and an announcement will be made soon.
