Using jQuery .animate() to spice up a simple page

Here is an example of using jQuery .animate to add a bit of interest to otherwise basic pages on this site ->

One effect is used to fade in/out the background colours of the menu items creating a nice ‘trailing’ effect as you hover over them (see below).

The other effect is to animate in the images and text, also if you click on “Conservation Area – Residential” you will notice the page frame grows to fit the new image and the images change on a timer.

Just thought I would share this as an example of what can be done with a small amount of jQuery code :)
