It is just a year ago this weekend that Quoakle - the graphical directory celebrated its Official Launch.
The main event of the day was the planting of hundreds of daffodil bulbs along the verges of the A40 running through Churcham, just west of Gloucester, which provided a wonderful display of bright yellow the following spring.
Community Pixels.net (the parent company) was very pleased to receive the generous support of two established Churcham businesses for the event - Fairview Nursery and Garden Shop and Greenfields Garden Services. The Official launch of this innovative new internet directory was well covered by local media - a radio interview for Severn Sound and articles in the Citizen and Forester.
One year on and Quoakle has seen a number of major developments. Probably the most significant have been:
the launch of Restaurants in Gloucestershire in November 2006
the launch of the Out and About, Pets and Weddings directories
in the first part of 2007.
Today sees another major development... as the Motoring in Gloucestershire webpage goes live on the web. The Quoakle team is very pleased to welcome Academy Driver Training from Cheltenham as the first business on this new site.
Watch how this topic develops over the next few weeks as Quoakle continues to connect more local people to more local businesses quickly and easily.
