Many have asked me why I made a website and not followed others in making Facebook pages, the answer to this is simple. On facebook style pages the information and data scrolls down as each new entry is made, gradually it is scrolled so far down it is impossible to find again or even deleted.

I wanted to provide the information in a static form, where users can rely on it always being in the same place and at hand when needed, without having to search endlessly for where it has now gone.


Before the Mobile and Internet age, most households had both local telephone directories and advertising directories to find out local contact information, there were also 'Pink Cards', A4 size printed advertising sheets that were put through the door which displayed local numbers to local businesses, but all these have now ceased to exist.
I wanted to not only replace these and once again have the information you need close to hand, but to greatly improve on them and have something that is easy to access whether at home, work or outside in the street, with much more than just telephone numbers. Woo has quick and simple access to Emergency information and contact numbers of Hospitals Doctors and Dentists, Schools, along with adverts for numbers you may need quickly such as plumbers or electricians.

There are many useful tools such as converters and calculators always at hand for when you need them, and many special sections that enable you to access TV, or offer advice and help, some even show you how to do things by video.
The webpages go much further than the old printed directories, they utilise videos and pictures, and nearly everything you see is a clickable link that will give you even further information, Click on a name and it will take you directly to the contact number or even to a website.

The WOO Portal is not just a simple list of information, it is a place to trust,
it is an experience, it is a place to go to, and a place to be involved.

Aware that people are wary of, and do not want to download memory hungry 'apps' or use up valuable computer or device disk space, I decided to create it purely as a website, giving the user the option of creating just a small (2kb) shortcut on their desktop, or saving the website address to their favourites list to instantly bring the information to view. Nothing is downloaded or placed on your phone or computer!
Some of the video content used in the creation of the site was made and is owned by others, Woo takes no credit for this, and all credit is given to the original creators.


Woo supports mental health, not just on Mental Health Week, but all year round.


To keep Woo always to hand and save having to search for your town, create a tiny (2kb) shortcut on your desktop. First go to the menu page for your nearest town, highlight and copy the full address shown in the address bar at the top of the page, then using the right mouse button click on a blank area of your desktop and choose 'New' and then 'shortcut'. Use the right button to click in the box, and Paste in the copied address, press OK. Another box will open for you to name your shortcut eg 'Woo', then press OK again. Tuck this new icon away in the corner of your screen and you will have instant access to your own local information at a click of the icon. Alternatively, goto the menu page of your town and click to add it to your list of Favourite's / Bookmarks.
