About Me

Hello! I’m Pete from RidgeTek Web Solutions, a WordPress website designer.

My name is Peter Surridge and at the end of 2014, after a long career at a Senior Level in the Technology function of a Global Financial organisation, I took the decision to escape for a new fresh challenge and so RidgeTek Web Solutions was established. RidgeTek is a Prudhoe based Website and Social Media Company supporting, creating and managing Websites and Social Media in the North East and across the UK.

End to End Design and Development

From the moment you engage with RidgeTek Web Solutions you will receive a personal service, focussed on drawing out the needs of your business or organisation and turning them in to a solution that meets both those needs and budget.

Business Consultancy

With experience of working in both a Global Corporate organisation, and setting up and running a small business RidgeTek can provide a Consultancy service to help your IT and online strategy for your business. 

Platform selection

We will work with you to select the most appropriate platform to meet your needs – whether this be WordPress, Opencart, Wix, or a bespoke development. RidgeTek specialises in WordPress development but also supports the other platforms.

Website Design & Development

Designs are typically based on template based solutions which are then tailored and branded specifically for your business.

Development is undertaken in a secure development area – allowing your existing website to remain active, or for a holding page to be in place whilst the development is taking place.

Content Strategy

Website content is provided by our clients as you know your business far better than we can. However, if you need help with this then we can engage with a Copywriting service on your behalf.

Website Hosting

RidgeTek has several options for hosting available for clients including:

  • Setting up a client owned hosting account
  • Hosting on RidgeTek reseller shared server
  • Hosting on RidgeTek dedicated Cloud Server

Pricing is based on website hosting requirements.

Support Packages

Support packages can include:

  • Regular updates of software and security
  • Website updates and support
  • Technical support
  • Training
  • SEO Updates and reporting
  • Analytical Reporting

Prices are based on requirements. See our Maintenance and Support page for more information.

Website Maintenance

All websites need updating from time to time – you may want (or need) new functionality, existing functionality becomes out of date with the latest platform software or you may just want a refresh of how your site looks. We will manage all of this on your behalf.


If you want to be able to manage your own website, online and social media presence then maybe a training and support engagement may better suit your needs. We can create a package that meets both your needs and your budget.


Optimising your website for SEO is an important aspect to running a website. Unfortunately, it’s not a quick process and you’ve probably got better things to do with your time than try and manage this for yourself so why not engage RidgeTek for a regular SEO maintenance package to ensure you are appearing on the search pages.

Ongoing Support

Support of our customers doesn’t stop when the website is implemented. We can tailor an ongoing maintenance agreement to ensure that your website stays up to date with the latest software and security, and giving you priority for further development changes making sure to keep up to date with any changes with the WordPress website designer

Peter is amazing to work with! I talked him through what I wanted my website to be like and he brought my ideas to life. He’s very approachable, honest, and patient, which is a good job since I’m terrible with anything technical! He explained everything I needed to know without using technical jargon and he taught me how to use my new website, step by step.

The amount of admin I have to do has reduced dramatically because the website is so interactive and really answers people’s questions.

He worked so hard to make sure I was happy, and the final result was even better than the brief I gave him. I know he’s always at the end of the phone or on email if I need support. I can’t recommend him enough.

I would highly recommend Ridgetek for website creation and maintenance, as well as domain hosting services.  Pete Surridge worked closely with our preschool to transform our old and unwieldy website into a fresh-looking and easy-to-maintain offering and took complete ownership to migrate the hosting solution.  Pete’s articulate approach meant that every detail was taken care of.  His response times were exceptional, and not only would he solve any problems that came up, he always strived for perfect, helping us to develop an outstanding website.  We cannot thank Pete enough!

Had the pleasure of being part of Peters WordPress training. It was a very informative course, gave us lots to think about & Peter’s delivery was excellent. Many thanks

Peter is a superstar. He’s knowledgeable, uses non-tech speak (helpful), and just lovely. He delivers one (every) time!!
And he’s dead canny. Totally recommend him.

Nicola Little

Director, Digital Sparkles

Peter is a superstar! He listened to what I needed and got the job done! He’s more than happy to answer questions and help out with anything he can above and beyond what I paid him to do. I’ll definitely be using his services again in the future.
