LibDems Cheltenham elections betting odds plummet

The betting odds for the Lib Dems to win the Cheltenham 2019 constituency election have plummeted.

The betting odds for the Lib Dems to win the Cheltenham 2019 constituency election have plummeted

At the beginning of the General Election William Hill quoted the LibDems odds of winning the Cheltenham constituency election as racing favourites at 1/10 and the Conservatives were on 4/1.

Since then the latest betting odds see the LibDems constantly drifting out now at 4/9 and Alex Chalk’s Conservative rapidly shortening to 13/8.

The latest Cheltenham constituency general election odds are quoted here.

Cheltonians need an MP from the governing party for future prosperity for our Town.

Whilst there are a number of issues on peoples’ minds the priority for Cheltonian electors ought to be simple – which candidate will propel Cheltenham to future prosperity?

When the Liberal Democrat Martin Horwood was MP from 2005 to 2015 he constantly campaigned to improve the railway station including extending the platforms and updating their car parks.

But as the LibDem MP was not a member of the ruling party he struggled forlornly to get any funding for the station improvements for 10 years.

However when Alex Chalk became the MP – as he was elected from the same party as the Government in 2015 he managed to organise and win the £10 million to achieve the station upgrades within a year. With the improvements being built right now after only a few years.

As Alex Chalk was born in Cheltenham’s suburbs and grew up here – as well as living here for a number of years he has considerable knowledge of what the town needs for the future – as well as an excellent record of achieving dramatic improvements.

Another example of Alex Chalk’s Conservative successes is the creation of the GCHQ Cyber Park – a huge £23 million development which will deliver thousands of well paid jobs in the constituency.

Conversely the LibDems want to close the Sandford Park Lido and build dozens of “affordable” flats on the scarce, green land.

All of which concludes that there is only one candidate that will improve Cheltenham’s prosperity- Alex Chalk’s Conservatives, as the odds of the LibDems winning an overall majority are quoted at 100/1 – the same odds as the likelihood of Labour winning the Cheltenham election.

Website Design Cheltenham supports Safer Internet Day

Website Design in Cheltenham is backing Safer Internet Day which is building online safety practices with young people

Website Design in Cheltenham is backing Safer Internet Day which is building online safety practices with young people
Many organisations including Website Design Cheltenham around the UK are contributing to the important work on making the internet a safer place for everyone

Tuesday 6 February marks Safer Internet Day 2018. Using the hashtag #SID2018, organisations globally will celebrate the safe and positive use of technology.

In Britain, the UK Safer Internet Centre, will be coordinating the activities of over 100 countries to “unite for a better internet”. Last year’s #SID2017 initiative saw its highest engagement with 1,645 UK organisations supporting the event. Some 42% of children aged 8-17 and 23% of parents heard about the day in 2017, and this year we hope to see more people aware and presented with the online resources to help young people navigate the web effectively and safely.

To achieve this, tech businesses can easily support the initiative by promoting and raising awareness through social media and using #SID2018. Some organisations will be going the extra mile by running events and creating resources that will be getting updated on an ongoing basis.

For example, the South West Grid for Learning run sessions for children, staff and parents throughout the year. Activities such as this mean a lot more schools directly working to involve parents actively, including online safety in the curriculum, and even empowering students in peer-to-peer activities to help each other stay safe.

Safe and secure environment

The idea of supporting #SID2018 is that we work throughout the year to ensure the internet is a safe, secure environment for young people at all times. This is not to negate the ongoing challenge that new technologies emerge every year, which adds complexity to this issue. Nonetheless, we need to understand that this evolving environment is one that our young children must move with, as it is likely to be them who will be using these technologies most in their future jobs, lives and relationships.

In a time where the UK must fill a digital skills gap, an acute understanding and practice of online safety education must evolve in parallel with the innovation of new products and services. This will enable individuals now and in the future to be safe, active digital citizens.

A number of organisations working in partnership with UK industry to tackle illegal content issues, such as WePROTECT, Global Alliance and the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), are excellent sources of information. The Royal Foundation’s Cyberbullying Taskforce has also set up a new code for children which offers simple steps to help tackle cyber bullying – Stop, speak, support.

There are also technical solutions provided by online services such as Google’s Safe Search function and YouTube Kids, as well as Instagram’s keyword moderation tool which allows parents and users to block comments that contain inappropriate language.

SME Cyber Prevention Glos Client Tops Google Rankings

Our SME Cyber Prevention Client in Gloucestershire Cyber139 is topping Google’s search results rankings.

Our SME Cyber Prevention Client in Gloucestershire Cyber139 is topping Google's search results rankings.
Not only does Website Design Cheltenham’s client Cyber139 top Google search results rankings – they also appear at number 2, number 3, number 4 and number 5- which is nearly as good as the Beatles’ invasion and domination of the US singles record charts in 1964.

Oh and their neighbour in Cheltenham GCHQ? Well they have a solitary ranking at the foot of Google’s first page at number 10.

So when you hear defeatists claim that all of the search engine rankings are dominated by the “big boys” and multinationals you now know otherwise.

Is our search engine ranking success “black hat stuffing”? Absolutely not!

We have been search engine optimising websites for nearly 20 years. It is a science, not an art as it is an explainable, repeatable process. Which if followed precisely could be done for you and your organisation as well.

However we say “could” rather than “will” deliberately – as there are no guarantees other than we will try our best for you. Equally these rankings don’t happen overnight. They can take weeks and months to achieve. Sometimes they happen sooner than later, but we never promise instant success. Patience is a necessity, not a virtue.

So, if you want your business’s search engine optimisation and Google digital marketing capabilities to take off into the millions please contact us NOW or ring us on now on 01242 521967 to see how we can help you to make money as well!

Website Design Cheltenham secures Cyber 139

With cyber security growing as an issue- and an unfortunate business, being based here in Cheltenham makes sense to develop a new, targeted and focused business.

Large scale cyber security breaches make the headlines but about 70% of organisations are not reporting their worst security incidents- so what is making the news is just a small proportion of the breaches that are actually taking place.

According to the latest report by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), there were 5.8 million incidents of cyber crime and fraud in the 12 months up to March 2016, affecting one in 10 people in England and Wales.

For small organisations the worst breaches cost between £65,000 and £115,000 on average and for large organisations may run to many millions of pounds. These costs can occur as direct financial losses due to fraud or theft; the loss of productivity due to time spent recovering from the effects of a successful attack; or the lost of trust and reputation.

Despite the vast majority of small firms (93%) taking steps to protect their business from digital threats, two thirds (66%) have been a victim of cyber crime in the last two years. Over that period, those affected have been victims on four occasions on average, costing each business almost £3000 in total.

So effective cyber prevention starts with the changed mind set of “what happens WHEN we are hacked” from “what happens IF we are hacked”. And working on from there.

Voice Over Artist Andy Turvey has had his main website secured by Website Design Cheltenham.Website Design in Cheltenham have been helping Andy Turvey with his websites including his main eponymous voiceover site for a number of years.

Having updated his website last year we realised that to maintain his professional status that his side would need to be secured- even though he doesn’t take online books nor maintain personal, sensitive customer data online.

This process also has the added advantage that Google ranks protected and secure websites over unprotected sites as a way of improving overall online reputations.

Then we added a number of other security measures. But what these exactly are are between us and the client.

Cyber security is a growing threat to all businesses- large and small so this area is one where we are increasingly helping our clients.

Large scale cyber security breaches make the headlines but about 70% of organisations are not reporting their worst security incidents- so what is making the news is just a small proportion of the breaches that are actually taking place.

Britain was being targeted by up to 1,000 cyber attacks every hour in 2014. The latest published figures in 2016 don’t even quantify the latest rates- except to say that 24% of ALL businesses they surveyed have had one or more cyber security breaches in the past 12 months.
