Overview

The Needham and Brockdish Community History Project was set up with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to share research carried out by group of volunteers into the history of the two adjacent villages in the Waveney Valley.

Splice Creative was asked to build a website so that the volunteers could be trained to upload their material to be viewed by a wider audience online. We worked to a specific brief about what was required by the project, as well as making the site as easy to maintain as possible.

Additionally, we created a guide for the volunteers with tips on importing their material, cropping images to size and editing pages made especially for those who may have limited experience in updating a website.

"As Co-ordinator of the Needham & Brockdish Heritage Community Project which had a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund I approached Splice Creative because I’d had a personal recommendation from someone who had previously used them to produce a local community website. We had prepared a detailed brief regarding the design and build of a formatted website having a backend content management system such as Wordpress. In order to make our limited budget stretch as far as possible, once the core pages were finished, we needed access to the site so the research material on the listed buildings in both Needham and Brockdish to be uploaded by a small team of project volunteers. In addition we supplied a separate document outlining the range of specific requirements for digital outputs funded by the HLF, and made clear the HLF requirement that we were expected to achieve best value for money from the limited amount allocated in our budget..

Kerry and her team responded promptly and enthusiastically to the brief as well as providing a competitive quote for the work and so we were pleased to commission them to undertake the project. They completed the job on time and to budget, providing us with a smart, professionally designed and fully functional website. They then ran a workshop for our volunteers at the Waveney Heritage Centre in Brockdish to teach half a dozen of our volunteers the basics of adding new material to the site using the Wordpress Software. I have commissioned a number of small web design agencies to build websites over the past 25 years and Splice were right up with the best of them – flexible, efficient and a pleasure to work with.
