I live in a wonderful village called Christchurch in Fenland. It is a small hamlet really of around 800-900 people spread out over quite a vast area with mostly farmland in between. I’m well known in the community for my environmental projects and my voluntary time I spend helping our local primary school Townley Primary, so a project like this is always daunting because although we all trust our skills and know what were doing, there is still that little gremlin that sits on your shoulder criticizing your website design work.
The brief for this website build was to design a mobile responsive booking website for our local community centre, that will enrich the community of Christchurch in Cambridgeshire, and also grow the centres business hub appeal to a broader range of clients from outlying villages including March, Wisbech, Downham Market and Ely, as well as serving clients from their nearest city of Cambridge.
The website had to incorporate a completely bespoke booking integration system to allow clients to book the amenities with ease
The website had to be easy to navigate, with larger than standard fonts and larger buttons to ensure the site catered for those with all abilities, disabilities, and visual impairments.
Lastly the colours and font parings had to be fitting with a modern clean look, which will allow for greater brand design as the website and its graphic design elements grow in the future.
The entire website project took 4 months of development, and includes a comprehensive bespoke booking system and events calendar to help promote local community events, and includes a secure Stripe payment system to handle the many requests the centre will need in the future.
