Heidi’s patisserie has embraced the online revolution with the launch of a new website.

The Swiss-inspired patisserie, based in Hayling Island, Hampshire, now has its own dedicated website, www.heidispatisserie.co.uk. This has been complemented with the business signing up to social media sites Twitter and Facebook.

Heidi Ormsby, owner of Heidi’s, said: We’ve always strived to offer customers great variety and value for money and will always be your local patisserie. But it is important that we move with the times and communicate with our customers in the most effective way possible.

"The new website means we can now keep customers informed of special offers, new recipes and showcase some of our more unusual, handmade celebration cakes, which we are particularly excited about."

Staff will be keeping Heidi’s online platforms up to date, with news and photos from its nine coffee shop locations. The website also includes information on the company’s history dating back to 1969, a menu with a pricing guide and bespoke cake designs for special occasions.
