Client Testimonials

"During his six years working for St Helens Council Education Department, Paul was, among other things, our in-house "languages expert", doing the translating, interpreting and liaison with our twin towns in Chalon-Sur-Saône, France, Stuttgart, Germany and El Prat de Llobregat, Spain. His participation has enabled us to maintain strong links with all three towns, particularly in the field of education, where he set up and managed a very successful work experience programme for sixth formers"
Brian Mainwaring, Director of Education, St Helens Council, August 1995

I thought I was fairly technophobic! Don’t get me wrong – I like new technology, as long as it helps me do things quicker and better! However, I do tend to come to it late. For example, I didn’t switch to CDs from cassettes until 1995. I didn’t get a mobile until 1998, and even now I only use the one I have for phone calls and the odd text message. I’ve been using various types of computer since the late 80s and I am familiar with the software which is useful to me, eg wordprocessing, desktop publishing, spreadsheets, Powerpoint, email, googling and websurfing. But do I understand it? Not a chance! Nor do I want to – I just want it to work.

As for websites, I’ve had my own – www.a1-solutions-spain.com - for nearly two years, but I paid a web designer to build that and still pay him to maintain it.

So who would have thought I would be capable of building a website on my own? I certainly didn’t!

But, it's easier than you think! I started yesterday with a free website builder - www.webs.com – and I’ve just finished and published a new site: www.a1-holidays-spain.webs.com

Designed solely to promote our two holiday lets in Ronda and Montejaque, I must say I’m pretty pleased with what I’ve come up with – thanks to webs.com, of course.

Why not take a look at my new site? Click here.

I’d be delighted to receive any feedback, positive or negative, and any bookings too, of course!
