Allora Show nets saving
IT'S saved valuable money, precious time and not to mention countless trees - so far, the new Allora Show Society website is a resounding success among local users of the internet.
Show Society secretary Wendy Ardrey said the website was launched at the end of the 2009 show and includes information on other events including the Heritage Weekend, Allora Auction, dressage and campdrafting.
“Anything we do at the showgrounds will be on the website to help people,” Mrs Ardrey said.
“The website has not only cut down the work we have to do, but also the costs, as we don't have to print as many books and hundreds of newsletters and has saved a lot financially.
“It has made things easier with updating information and has saved time for me and the public as you don't have to make as many phone calls.”
Mrs Ardrey said the website had not only made life easier for the show society, it made information more accessible for the public, with most people now having an internet connection.
“It saves people calling to book sites, register for events, camping, membership and general information,” she said.
“There is a show schedule and people can select what they are interested in and can access it easily - which makes it more convenient.”
Mrs Ardrey said the website was also useful during an event, as people could log on and receive updates instead of calling the show office.
“We would all be unbelievably busy (during show time) and we knew if we had a website it would be easier,” she said.
