Lismore Community Website Group
Hello to all our wonderful supporters and visitors to this website.
The Lismore Community Website Group was established in January 2001 as a sub group of the Lismore Public Hall Committee.
Our initial aim was to provide a free public internet access and encourage, support and provide training to Islanders to learn about computers and the internet.
At this time there was no broadband on the Island (remember the days of dial-up connections and speeds of 52k, if you were lucky).
In 2003 the North Argyll Islands Digital Community Project, run by Argyll and Bute Council, provided every household in the Island with a new computer and internet access.
We became very involved with this successful project and felt that within a couple of years our initial aims had been achieved:
The Island was technically savvy!
Since then we have concentrated on developing and maintaining the Island’s Community website.
Over the years the website grew immensely and contained a huge wealth of information and provided an excellent snapshot of the Island of Lismore in the early 21st Century.
In 2019 we felt it was time for a refresh of the website, but we still see it as very much a Community project and new content is always welcomed!
You can still see the old website although some of the functionality is missing (no webcam or guestbook for example) but the many photos that were added to the site over the years are still there to be enjoyed...
