The Happy Valley web site celebrates 20 years
of service in summer 2016 - it was one of the first million or
so web sites available in 1996; today there are literally billions
of sites. I started out with a couple of dozen pages, now there
are around 1,000, with over 50,000 page hits per month! The technology
has moved on tremendously over the years, both in the method of
displaying pages and the languages and techniques for writing them.
Many pages are now dynamic, created on demand from a database,
and capable of being maintained on the road via smartphone so enabling
Thank you very much for using the Happy Valley web site,
please keep coming back! I hope it provides you with the information
you seek. If you would
like additional information to be made available here please let
me know, or send it to me for inclusion!

Happy Valley - the future ...
Your webmaster is noticing the passage of the years! (Iadmit to being
somewhat over 70) I recognise that there is a need
to hand over to someone younger and brighter. So if you
have an interest in maintaining a highly popular web
site which has a great following from the people of Bollington,
then please drop me a note - webmaster
at happy valley. This is a task for someone with an interest in
the town and its community, its people, and then getting
the information together on the page. It will be of less
interest if you want to design and build web sites from
a technical point of view.
I also recognise that the site has not kept up with the fast changing
capabilities of modern web site technology. I am not an artist and
so my pages tend to be textual rather than artistic.
With this in mind I am now giving thought to how to go
about a significant facelift for the site. At the same
time I will need to introduce new techniques for construction
and maintenance and it will become largely database driven
with dynamic pages.
Watch this space!
