Gosport.info is a website giving information and photos of Gosport, Hampshire, England, UK both past and present. If there is information or photographs, that you would like to see, please let me know and I will add them. It can take a while for me to add all the items that need putting on the site. There is a lot still to move and check from the old web site.
Do you have anything Gosport related to go to the just under 600 email addresses in the April Newsletter. Please let me know.
Would you consider being on a committee looking after Gosport.info in to the future. With the Internet, it would not be necessary to be or meet. You can help with transferring the information from the old site. Adding, amending information and photos or be involved with making decisions about how the site goes forward, the funds available to the site are best spent. Let me know what you think on firstname.lastname@example.org . This is now being set-up, so please let me know as soon as you can if you maybe interested. The News & Comments Page is now being used.
I have now swapped the domains www.gosport.info brings you to this site. A lot of information is still on the site which is now reached under gosportinfo.org. If you do not find what you want on this site, please use the above link. You will find some of the information from the old Home Page to the right on the News Page or Links Page.
Gosport Hampshire England or Gosport.info is a website that has been around in various forms since April 2001. This site gives information a photos about gosport. It is now going through another major update. The site was set-up 3rd April 2001 using the domain Gosport Life with just 50 pages grew to around 1.400 pages and this new version is being added to with both new information and information from the old site there is still a long way to go, but plan to have the move completed and the old site closed by the end of this year.
In the past I added the news items to the Home Page so as not to overcrowd this page, I will no longer do this. They will be added to other pages or look to using the ‘News’ section of the site.
The site is now using WordPress and I am now starting to move Gosport.info over to this site. If you understand or would like to learn, WordPress and would like to help me get this underway. Please contact me on email@example.com, phone 023 9252 3358 or mobile 078 1751 7995.
How is the new Gosport.info site coming on?
See the March What’s Ons as a number of events have been added including the Sultan Theatre Group Musical ‘Made in Dagenham’.
News and Comments page has now been set-up
Friends of Gosport Museum site, now separated out which now has all the information on the old site to the new one on www.fogm.org.uk . The Local History Luncheon Club new site is at www.gosporthistoryclub.org.uk . Other moves, memories to this site and all of Roger Cox’s and Martin Chandler’s photos and added some Thomas Newton’s Car Rally photos with other events photos including the recent snow..
I have tidied up the monthly What’s on pages ready for this years events. Many events start from Easter Holiday time, which is less that two weeks away.
I remove the sections from the old site when the information is checked and added to this site. On the old Gosport.info site a lot more business links have been checked and moved. Let me know if your business has not been added, with or without a web site, please give me the details and I will add it. I am also working on the History and Memories sections and have added the RH Haslar page and ephemeral page for scans of printed items of local historical interest. The old site can be reached on Gosportinfo.org .
Google now seems to see the new website, though the page where you find Gosport.info, if you search Gosport seems to move between page one down to page 13 each time I look. If you search Gosport with Hampshire or England or UK or History I seem to find it on page one or two. I hope I will b able to keep it there, but I am not a Google search expert.
Thank you for your interest in the past and I hope this change will enhance your interest. If you have any suggestions on how the pages and sections, in particular how the History and request sections of the site are set-up, they will be very welcome. Please let me know on firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you would like to support Gosport.info you can join the Newsletter email list, supply items and photos for the site, join the committee or see the Support and Sponsorship page. Thank you
