Our community thrives in part to the local businesses that we have, shops, garages, professional services etc. Many depend on us for the regular business, so spare a moment and look at their services first! Socially, they provide jobs and how often do you 'bump' into people at the shops or read the notice boards?
It is then reasonable to support our businesses as best as we can.
3DC.org.uk is a community business, it puts businesses into the frame by offering a web site to any business in the community and promoting it within the community at no cost to them. We will also register domain names (slight cost incurred)!
We provide the technical support and an easy to use content management system so you can keep it updated and fresh with your information when you want it.
We list businesses that have adopted the internet on the community sites, so they get that extra help. You can see a list of local businesses here
There are central and local government agencies whose sole aim is to support and promote good business practise, much of their work is free and it makes sense to have free support!
