Eddie Eldridge

I have now retired as Managing Director of Softdata Internet Ltd and sold the business.

Born in Gloucester, I have lived here for most of my life. I attended the Crypt School and have lived in Serlo Road, Podsmead, Westgate Street and now in Churchdown.

I created Visit Gloucestershire and still take an active interest in it and post on the boards there daily. Married to Vanda I intend to enjoy life and we hope to sell our house here and move into the Forest of Dean.


We have sold our house in Churchdown and moved into Cinderford in the beautiful Forest of Dean. As I always like to support local I have started a new web Directory for the Forest of Dean that is 100% free. The directory has exceeded all my expectations. The number of views are staggering.

Web Design

I still get a lot of requests to design web sites, but I only accept from small local businesses and organisations now. I can get a web site live with a secure certificate that allows you to update it yourself and your own domain name for £200.00 . Anything larger I always pass on to Luke at Softdata. I highly recommend him.

Here are a couple of web sites I have produced:
