It is a volunteer-run ‘online’ publication only.
The Enderby EYE website has been reporting on events and activities in the Enderby area since 2005. It achieves this through both the valued contributions from members of the local community as well as monitoring and input from its voluntary staff (otherwise known as the ‘crew’!)
In it’s early life, Enderby EYE was (often laboriously) hand-coded and implemented as a ‘static site’. In the run-up to the EYE’s sixth birthday in May 2011, the site was relocated on new servers and given a ‘makeover’. It seemed reasonable to make the job easier by utilising a content management system.
So why change to a ‘Responsive’ website?
We considered various options to make the website more accessible to the large number of smartphone/tv/tablet and other hand-held devices used to view the site. The way folk are viewing the web has changed over time – and so the Enderby EYE has adopted a social media/blog-like appearance that adapts to different viewing platforms and devices. The EYE also has a Facebook page and can be followed on Twitter.
Today our goal remains the same as it was in 2005 – which is to aggregate as much contemporary information as possible about Enderby and its vicinity and to serve as a resource for those wishing to foster community spirit within the village, as well as former residents who would like to keep ‘in touch’.
The site is monitored, updated and maintained by volunteer effort on a daily basis to help promote awareness of, and active participation in, local events and initiatives.
