Richard Thorne - That's Me!

Learn about the guy you may want to do work for you and get in touch to as those burning questions

Hi I’m Richard

This is where you can find out more about me, hopefully, you’ll get a sense of what makes me tick and if you are looking to ask me to help with your project that we can work well together. There’s nothing worse than letting someone into your project only to find they think they know best, don’t communicate with you or even try to steer your project away from your well thought out plan.


My working life has been varied, starting off with a few years in the army, then I worked as a petrol pump attendant, milkman (showing my age now lol), motorcycle courier, van driver which led into management for a couple of parcel delivery companies.

I started self employment back in 2003 cleaning and maintaining rental properties, that developed into a Letting agency where I specialised in renting rooms in shared houses.
I’ve always liked doing things myself and when I needed a website for the letting agency, naturally I did it myself and haven’t looked back.

Web Design

Most of the websites I built back then were for my own marketing purposes but after 2009, I started to build them for other people and now work fulltime as a freelance WordPress Web Designer providing professional and affordable websites for local businesses and individuals who want a new website or redesign to enhance their online presence and giving them the tools they need for their website to be indexed and start to be found in the search results.

This is the other me!!

All my life I’ve loved drumming, we didn’t have a lot of money so as a kid I made my own drums out of biscuit tins and cling film, they were great! But didn’t last long frown
I’ve never been a drum kit player my coordination isn’t that great, but I played Side drum for a time while I was in the Army and got to bash about on different whenever I could.

This wasn’t planned well not consciously but a couple of years after moving to Glastonbury I got to form I a wonderful Performance Drumming Troupe here in Glastonbury ‘The Dragon Drummers’ I dreamt of performing again but didn’t think I would get to do anything like this, now I get to dress up, wear makeup and play some great drumming with some amazing friends for whoever wants to listen.
Usually, we are drumming up Glastonbury High Street but also get asked to perform at events and festivals.

Richard designed me a fantastic affordable website. He didn't blind me with "techy" details or try and push me to... spend more than I could afford. A diligent, patient chap who I can highly recommend. If there ever has been a "glitch" on the website he has sorted it out immediately. No nasty hidden more

We approached Richard for a new website design to create a fresh online look to the business. He's a patient and... thorough web designer and we've been very pleased with the resulting website. Thank you more
