About Us

The Happy Valley web site celebrated 25 years of service in summer 2021 – it was one of the first million or so web sites available in 1996; today there are literally billions of sites. I, Tim Boddington, started out with a couple of dozen pages, now there are over 500 plus c.2,000 family history pages, plus every edition of Bollington Live!, with hundreds of users accessing the site every day. The technology has moved on tremendously over the years, both in the method of displaying pages and the programming languages and techniques for writing them. All the pages are now dynamic, created on demand from a database, and capable of being maintained online, at the desk, or on the road via smart phone or tablet, so enabling instant update.

Thank you very much for using the Happy Valley web site, please keep coming back! I hope it provides you with the information you seek. If you would like additional information to be made available here please let me know, or send it to the webmaster for inclusion!

Many thanks for using the Happy Valley web site!
Tim Boddington, Webmaster, September 2021.

WordPress has arrived …

What you are now looking at is the latest incarnation of the Happy Valley website, written and maintained using the world’s most popular website development tool, WordPress!

We transformed the old Happy Valley website into what you see now. The content has been copied across and updated, and the look and feel is much improved.

The menu at the top of the page has been improved, providing easy access to a ‘What’s On’ page, a Contact form (send us any comments, and tell us about any errors or omissions that you spot), a site map, our Privacy Policy, and a useful search function. The whole website now has a common look and feel, so we hope you will find it easy to use.

WordPress also automatically provides the ability to view the Happy Valley website on a smart phone or tablet computer, which makes it handy for use when out and about.

Welcome to the future!
