Hi!! I thought I’d introduce myself ?
I’m Zelda; I created Christchurch Online brand & website back in April, amidst lockdown when I noticed people online struggling to find food options outside the major supermarkets as well as opening hours for banks, post offices and takeaways.
So I decided to create an online digital hub that had all the information someone in Christchurch could possibly need, while helping to promote the local hard working family run businesses open and delivering during that time. ?
I wanted to do something to support our local community during this time. I’ve had such an overwhelming, positive response, not just from the businesses, but people using the website as well as local authorities, we even got some press! ?
Since then, I feel as though we’ve created our own little community – promoting the amazing, hardworking, local businesses we have in the area. And the original COVID-central website and information doesn’t reflect where we now are, a few months on. So, it was time for a change!
Together we’re creating a digital community promoting the independent shops, restaurants & businesses in #christchurchdorset showcasing what a vibrant area we’re lucky to live and work in!
There’s plenty more that I want to do with Christchurch Online, but for now we have listings for dog friendly venues, amazing places to get Sunday lunch, great coffee venues and even a few of the local events that are still happening.
I live and work in Christchurch. I grew up here (Priory & Twynham girl!). It’s my community.
My ‘day job’ is a freelance photographer ? https://www.studioshotz.co.uk/ and website designer ? https://dhwebsites.co.uk/ and I’ve been lucky enough to work with so many businesses already pre-lockdown over the past 10+ years I’ve been in business, but would love to get to know you all better! So, let’s chat! ?
