ABOUT THE ECKINGTON VILLAGE WEBSITE AND TIPS FOR NAVIGATING THE WEBSITE
This modified version of the Eckington Village website has a number of small improvements compared to the previous version.
The major change is a new EVENTS IN AND AROUND ECKINGTON page, replacing the previous NEWS, EVENTS AND PUBLIC INFORMATION page. This is to avoid
duplication of events, etc and notices advertised in the ECKINGTON VILLAGE NEWS, which can be downloaded free as a pdf file. Just click on the ECKINGTON
VILLAGE NEWS menu item on this page and from there you will find the latest and three previous versions to download.
ECKINGTON VILLAGE NOTICES have been added to the HOMEPAGE.
Entries on the EVENTS IN AND AROUND ECKINGTON page will now include events in the local area in South Worcestershire and north Gloucestershire and may include Village events not mentioned fully in the relevant Eckington Village News and important notices, including important Parish Council notices, which have not yet been included in the Eckington Village News. For example where an important notice is available before the publication of the relevant issue of the Eckington Village News.
Other changes should be apparent, for example, a slight change in the order of menu items on some menus including on this page, Photos are now limited to those taken in the village and immediate surroundings.
For more information about the Parish Council, meetings, agendas, minutes, information about councillors and other documents, please click on the link to the Parish Council Website which also has appropriate links, for example to Wychavon Disctirct Council, Worcestershire County Council, Bus timetables, etc.
READ ON FOR TIPS ON NAVIGATING THE WEBSITE.
Apart from external websites, each page contains a horizontal menu just under the photograph at the top of the page. To navigate the horizontal menus to other pages move over the menu. When the page you want is highlighted in red, click and you will be taken to that page. The Home Page always remains to the left and is coloured green.
The Parish Council Website is an external website as are most links. These will open in a new window. To return to the Village website, simply close the new window and any further ones opened from that website.
Where a page contains numerous items, there may be a subsidiary menu to navigate that page so as to take you to a particular item, set of items or section on that page. The subsidiary menu will appear normally below the page title and any associated description.
If you download a pdf file from the Village Website, or other websites, these will usually upload in a new window. There is a difference if you use the Firefox browser, for example, and you be given the opportunity to download or save the file as a pdf file. The Opera browser has a slightly different way of downloading pdf files, but this should fairly easy to follow. Personally, I use Opera as it has the ability to suppress some advertising. Major changes to the website are tested with all major browers such as Google, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Microsoft Edge.
Please let us know what you think of the website. Send an email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' or 'email@example.com'.
At the end of every page and every section of the page, where applicable, there will be a link back to the top of that page (as the one below).
ACCESSIBILITY OF ECKINGTON VILLAGE WEBSITE
This website has been, and is being, modified to make it easier to navigate and access for disabled persons. This work is underway but includes measures such as using descriptive 'ALT'
text for images, not using dynamic or moving content, being able to navigate using the arrow keys and TAB key instead of using a mouse or keypad, and modifying the website in such a way
that the use of appropriate screen reading software is facilitated.
The changes are in line with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018, SI 952. This is not a legal requirement for this particular website, unlike the position, for example, relating to the Eckington Parish Council website.
Further information and details will follow in due course.
