Like the majority of sites we are late in implementing the legal requirement, but we will be fully compliant within the next 2 weeks. Last week the UK government admitted that most of its sites would not comply with the new rules in time. It said it was “working to achieve compliance at the earliest possible date”.
If you are a customer of SoftData Internet Ltd web hosting we will be offering you a complimentary script for your site to make sure that you are fully legal. Do Contact Us if you have any questions about this.

If there was ever a real “hero of Gloucester”, then that person should be Ivan Taylor, chairman of the Westgate Quarter Traders’ Association, who runs Truscot Jewellers .
Ivan can be seen every day early in the morning sweeping up, not only in front of his own shop, but all of College Court and into Westgate Street. He is incapable of walking past any rubbish without picking it up and putting it into the nearest bin. Most of the decorations and many of the plants that are brightening up the westgate quarter were bought by Ivan, and then put up and planted by him. He is over 70 years old, but nothing seems to stop him.
Not content with running the Westgate Quarter, Ivan is also the driving force behind the four gates of Gloucester , and a great supporter of local business. If we had another dozen like him, then Gloucester would be transformed. We all owe him a great vote of thanks.
Sadly I have to admit, I just don’t have time to update this site. It is a shame because there is great potential there, and it gets reasonable traffic, but I’m just too busy.
I have always been fanatical about promoting Gloucester ( I was born here in this marvelous little city ) , and I’m proud to be involved with the latest ways of promoting our city.
Set up and funded by City Centre businesses to share news, features and articles about our City, around our City. An independent social enterprise organisation, Four Gates has been created by Gloucester business and people, forGloucester businesses and people.
The regularly updated website and bi-monthly publication aims to build and enrich our City Centre .
It will also feature a listing for every city centre shop and business, something that is not available anywhere at all.
I’m also proud to be hosting the Believe in Gloucester website run by marketing Gloucester
It is marvelous to be in our new offices in Westgate St Gloucester. You can feel the buzz of the city with the bustle of shoppers passing by ouir office windows, and of course it is easy to pop out for a coffee or lunch.
The new office furniture is due here on the 28th, and Tammy Lynne will be coming the week after to take photos for us.
It is a great shame, but the web site of our local newspaper, The Citizen is just about unusable. The comments are often batant trollism with arguments, bullying and quite disgusting personal comments. Those that do get banned simply register with another user name. It is impossible to sort for local news. I try clicking on Gloucester news and every day find it full of Cheltenham Tewkesbury and Forest of Dean Stories.
What a shame. We do need local papers.
