Galashiels Heartland of the Borders – Website Development

Energise Galashiels Trust secured funding from the Scottish Government and South of Scotland Enterprise to deliver several projects with the aim of socially and economically regenerating Galashiels town centre.

Purpose

The lack of digital presence for the town of Galashiels had been identified as an area of development by various individuals, groups and agencies who have an interest in the future of the town.

A multi-phase digital development project was scoped, which included a new website which would become the underpinning platform for communications for both visitors to the town and locals alike.

Method

Building a multi-functionality website that included membership profiles, events calendar, social media posting, stories and town trails, enables Energise Galashiels Trust to showcase the broad variety of offerings of the town while celebrating its rich past and promoting its future potential.

Impact

Galashiels now has a single digital source of information for the town and a launch pad from which to promote future development.
