Athena to the rescue of HCG

The Halifax Chairty Gala have launched a new website, using Athena, just days before this years event.

Unfortunately the HCG's previous hosting company have stopped trading and earlier this week the website became unavailable. However, with very little notice a new site has been resurrected. Using the content management system Athena, developed by This site is now up and running, only hours after the previous one failed.

I have had a lot of work to do, recreating pages including content and our shop. The Alert modual caming in useful asking visitors to please be patient, this is a very busy time of year for all our committee (me included) but we managed to get a full service restored by the weekend.
