CMS Design for Charity

An example of a  Content Management System (CMS ) website designed and launched in 2010 for “The Horndean Community Association” at Merchistoun Hall in Horndean, near Portsmouth in Hampshire.

This CMS Website’s core features include the ability for members of the Association (staff and trustees) to directly create News articles of up-coming events and stories about past events. This example boasts over 200 pages of News since its launch in 2010.
