Who are the Peterborough Local History Society?

Peterborough Local History Society (PLHS) was formed in 1991 by a group who believed that the city needed an association where people could come together to share and enjoy the history of the area. Since then, they’ve grown to a society with around 75 members. Some of their members are researchers, delving into specific avenues of history and some are authors of local books, whilst the majority just want to learn from various speakers.

Joining on to one of our maintenance plans, Julie of the PLHS agreed with us it would probably be best making best use of their time by spending the first few months working on redesigning the website from the ground up. Lots of outdated and abandoned WordPress plugins we’re used and the backend was in a sorry state. We developed the new website using WordPress, a platform the society were familiar and happy with using. We created custom page templates using the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to create robust and dynamic page templates, allowing the society to maintain their website with ease, with no need for coding experience. As with all of our websites, it’s fully responsive across all devices.

The Results

Client Feedback

“We have been working alongside Aaron, of elera web for over three years now, and have always enjoyed a very professional relationship. From day one he has provided the personal support that we certainly needed! Nothing is ever too much trouble, and whatever we ask, is done in record time! From original design, through to recent refresh of our website, Aaron has enabled our web presence to be the envy of other like societies. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to you.”
