A dedicated new website is launching – www.staustell.co.uk
Created especially for St Austell and the surrounding communities – designed to showcase the area, local businesses and what’s on event information for residents and visitors alike.
The initiative is led by St Austell Bay Economic Forum (SABEF) – a group of local businesses, public bodies, and community organisations – who’re working together to make St Austell a great place to live, work and play.
Over six years ago SABEF recognised that a local website to champion St Austell would be an asset to the area. Thanks to the initial support from a group of local sponsors and willing volunteers the site took shape, giving it the basis on which to build the new design.
Now, the reimagined website has a whole new look and feel. Content rich and regularly updated by the local team, St Austell’s new website aims to offer a central resource of information, news, practical advice, and timely event details to support local businesses, clubs, groups, and services.
The website offers an easy-to-navigate online resource, which highlights that there is more to St Austell than meets the eye. Approximately 28,000 people live in the St Austell area alone, and the area attracts over 1 million visitors each year.
Covering a wide geographical area to include the hinterland; from Fraddon to Indian Queens to the northwest, Grampound Road, Grampound and Trewithen to the west, Tregony, Caerhays, Gorran and Mevagissey to the southwest, Fowey to the east, Lanhydrock and Bocconoc to the north east with the north border defined approximately by the A30.
Local people are invited to share details of community initiatives and cultural events – helping to support the creative economy – and businesses are welcome to take advantage of a free listing in the Local Directory feature or bespoke advertising packages to drive awareness of their services, offers and skills.
Visitors are offered a glimpse into life in St Austell Bay, with an insider guide to all the best beaches, activities to try, things to see and places to eat and drink – helping to make the most of their stay.
The new website celebrates St Austell’s unique sense of place that’s alive with innovation, opportunity, and adventure.
Peter Moody, curator of the St Austell website, SABEF deputy chair and St Austell Print Company MD, says: “We know St Austell is an area with so much to offer, from internationally renowned gardens and world heritage sites to fantastic local businesses, creative communities and brilliant community events. We hope that St Austell’s new website will help our community to safely reconnect, foster positive experiences and support the local economy”.
