Website Statistics

Fifth Anniversary Progress Report

Your webmaster enjoying himself hugely at Chichester CathedralIt is now over five years since the first "Semi-official web page" of St Peter's Church Nottingham went on-line in July 1996. In those early days there were a mere eleven pages in the site and no pictures. There were only 53 "hits" in the first month, most of them probably me. Since then the site has "just growed" quite considerably and there are over 400 pages, with numerous pictures and audio files.

The figures below give some idea of the current number of visitors, and we are pleased to welcome guests from all over the world and to read their comments in the Visitors' Book. It is gratifying that so many people enjoy the site and find it useful. It still seems odd to me that an article I wrote back in 1996 should be read by nine people each and every day in 2001. To paraphrase Thomas Hardy commenting on his novel "Tess of the D'Urbervilles", if I'd known it was going to be so popular I'd have taken more trouble over it!

I am grateful to the clergy at St Peter's (Leslie Morley, Eileen McLean and Andrew Deuchar) who have encouraged me in this venture, to Robert Cockcroft and Jim McLean who have made my task much easier, and to all the talented and thoughtful members of St Peter's who have contributed articles to the printed magazine and ipso facto to this website.
