The website has been in production for the last 6 months with a small but committed project team of BFTA volunteers and will go live in early February 2015.

Steve James, Chair of BFTA said:

"It’s incredibly important that the Traders Association continues to invest in our community. In a difficult economic environment it’s essential that we continue to show people that there’s plenty to do and see here and our shiny new website is going to play a big part in promoting the town.

The website features sections showing our history, the work of community groups, showcasing the work of local photographers and, of course, has information on all our members. And there’s over 100 of them!

With so much, diverse information, it was a big job to bring it all together, so we were delighted that mtc offered to help us with a generous sponsorship deal worth £4000. But best of all, the guys at mtc have been great to work with and will continue to help up keep the site up to date for the next few years. "

Mike Callachan, Managing Director of MTC Media said:

"The Broughty Ferry Traders’ Association is a fantastic organisation and we were delighted to work with them to deliver a new website which accurately reflects how fantastic a place Broughty Ferry is. We had seen the previous website and knew that there was massive scope for improvement, and having had business relationships with a number of members of the association got into talks about how we could help. It has been a fantastic project to work on, and we are delighted to be giving something back to the local area. We are very proud of the area we come from, and are happy to support the wider business community wherever we can. "
