"The Thomas Hardy Society is an educational Charity founded in 1968 with the intention of promoting public knowledge and understanding of the life and works of the Dorset poet and novelist to anyone with an interest in Thomas Hardy anywhere in the world. It is a Society as much for the lay-enthusiast as the scholar, student or general reader.

The Society is run by a Council of Management, which meets regularly in Dorchester, and has an office in the Dorset County Museum, staffed by volunteers. The Council of Management organizes an ongoing Programme of Events including regular lectures, concerts, poetry readings and guided walks through Hardy’s Wessex. Every year a special Birthday Weekend celebration is held on the weekend closest to Hardy’s Birthday (June 2nd); here, amongst other events, on the Saturday Dorchester Town Council pay tribute to their most famous citizen and on the Sunday a special service is held in Hardy’s home church at Stinsford."

Early 2018 we were asked to tender for the contract to rebuild the all new Thomas Hardy Society website. The brief was to deliver an easy to use, bespoke built website for the society to promote not only their agenda, meetings and events but also take membership via a custom built membership management system.

Membership to the society is delivered annually via rolling subscription and the gateway of choice was to be PayPal. 

The website takes members from all over the globe and is currently growing at an average of 15% per month.
