Website History 

New for 2019

Shadforth WI website's major update in September 2019 aimed to make things easier to find and to add some pages for the Committee to personalise and add updates.

New Shadforth WI Website - 2014
CommuniGate website hosting sadly closed in July 2014. This led to a move and re-vamp of the Shadforth WI website, including it's very own web address: www.shadforthwi.org.uk!

Before the refresh this had 1307 visitors.

The first SWI Website:
The first version of the SWI website dated from November 2005 to the end of July 2014, when Communigate closed its web service and we moved our web address, and updated our website look, to  www.shadforthwi.org.uk.

In December 2005 this website (at its initial Communigate address) won joint second prize in the CommuniGate Best Community Website Competition, in association with Barclays, chosen from among the 54 nominated websites. The Highly Commended prize was a £1,000 cheque for Shadforth WI, which was presented to then WI President  Margaret Nancarrow and the SWI Web Editor at a ceremony at the Northern Echo offices in Darlington.  You can read more about this, and the other events since 2005, by following the links to the left. 

The number of visitors the first SWI Website had between November 2005 and 5th July 2014 was: 4376.
