New PAADA website now working well
After a lot of careful attention to detail the new PAADA.co.uk website is virtually finished and is working already. The website has been set up as a directory of the antique dealers of the Petworth area and inevitably this entailed much gathering of contact information. Lots of images had to be taken which hopefully give a good idea of the premises, as well as examples of each Dealer's stock and a map showing the location of the PAADA member.
The What's On section helps give visitors a taste of local events - Festival of Speed, Revival Meeting, Glorious Goodwood, Gold Cup Polo and many more.
PAADA.co.uk is complemented by a Twitter account - Petworth Antiques - @PAADA_Petworth #paada and a FB account - Tudor Rose Antiques & Interiors - Petworth
So please go to www.paada.co.uk and see all the antique dealers in Petworth - there is a wealth to choose from.
