South Yeo Farm West, just outside Okehampton, is holding a course on how to build your own website designed for those in rural businesses.

Grants are available for those who would like to take part in the popular course which is ideal for anyone wanting to publicise and promote their farm, small-holding or holiday cottage business.

The one-day course, run by South Yeo Farm West's Andrew Hubbard, teaches all the skills needed to build a website, including arranging web hosting and registering your website domain name.  Anyone with basic computer skills (emailing, producing simple documents and using the Internet), will be able to build their own website.

A maximum of six people attend each course so that you are guaranteed individual attention.

The next course is on Saturday 24th November and farmers and foresters in the South West region and smallholders based in Cornwall are eligible for RDPE funded support; half of the course fees are reimbursed to eligible participants through The SW Skills Programme operated by Duchy College Rural Business School.
