New Northants CALC Website

New Northants CALC Website

Danny Moody, CEO said:

"Northants CALC had a homemade (WordPress) website, which was OK but a bit limited in its expandability. Northants CALC chose to implement a new web site with 2commune to be able to benefit from new features in the future. 2commune are specialists in the sector and so understand our market well. The feedback from our member councils has been very positive".
