The website was first launched in September 2007 to provide a one-stop website for the village of Benwick, where all information can be found at the click of a mouse. Since it’s launch, the website has grown and evolved, and undergone two major redevelopments. In under four years we have had over 7000 visitors, bringing in people from as far away as America and Australia.
On the site you will find pages on all the village groups, a vast collection of photographs and an extensive section for the Parish Council. The website has been developed to give you all the information you need, so if there is anything you think should be added, let me know!
I decided that the website was due for a makeover so had my web development company completely renovate the site, making it much more manageable and bringing in some fantastic new features.
My name is Adam Keppel-Garner, i’m 22 and have recently graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University studying Human Biology. I am the Deputy Town Clerk / Town Centre Manager at Knutsford Town Council in Cheshire and also run a small web Development company, Refined Line Web Development.
Whilst I no longer live in the village, I run the village magazine, The Benwick Bugle and co-authored “Benwick Bygones” Benwick’s the only book on the history of Benwick with Janet Fountain in 2008. My mother, Lyn Keppel-Spoor is a Parish Councillor in Benwick, and I help organise the Dickensian Market each year.
