Hodnet’s New Website Goes Public

1st July 2010 – Hodnet’s website is now open for visitors!

Established as one of the outcomes of the 2009 Hodnet Parish Plan, this website is designed and maintained by a group of volunteers. Our hope is that it will become a valuable resource to local people and visitors alike.
We look forward to local groups and organisations contributing their details for the relevant directory pages, and we are especially keen to receive a regular flow of information for the upcoming events and news sections. Please see this page for more details.
If you have any comments or suggestions concerning the website, please contact the webteam.
