Let me know what you think about web changes
By Claire Hatie
If you have been on the calendar view section of the website recently, you may have noticed a few changes.
I have upgraded this section so it now includes filtering by categories as well as a calendar-specific search. It also works dramatically better on mobile devices than the previous version did so please have a play around and let me know what you think.
It’s all part of my mission to make NTDIB the best resource for finding out what’s going on in Bermuda.
* Cafe 4 in Washington Mall has introduced Bermuda Nights, an opportunity to hear live entertainment by local musicians on Friday nights.
