I took over managing the Falmouth Allotments website and needed to migrate the website from a previous hosting solution. I initially deployed the WordPress site to a Standard B1s virtual machine. However, a recent update ended up breaking the WordPress site and initial attempts to fix failed.

What looked like a headache to troubleshoot, and resolve was an opportunity to redesign the site. When I took over managing the place, I had discussions with the allotment committee about the website needing a redesign, with initial design ideas discussed with a small group of volunteers. Fortunately, the website going down was an impetus to begin this project.
