Spring has sprung…

Spring has sprung…

Spring has definitely sprung and I’m enjoying working on a variety of different projects for non-profit organisations – ranging from web design, to social media to scoping out an IT project aimed at people with dementia.

Life in the freelance lane is roaring along….

Winter is here…

Yes, it’s slightly colder but working well here…

Delighted to be working on several websites – including launches in the New Year of the Alice Cross Centre in Teignmouth and a new one for Dawlish Celebrates Carnival!

Also working on the social media  Dawlish Walking Festival 2017! Going to be a busy year!

Arts Festival is a go!

23rd April 2016 will see the launch of Dawlish Arts Festival website up until the end of the Festival in early June. Tickets can be bought online!

Other websites under development or in the planning stage.

Workshops planned for May, June and September this year in Dawlish.

 

Winter 2016

We are currently working on a new website and database for the Dawlish World War One project.

We are also running free workshops on creating websites for community groups in March 2016.

Busy summer heading into autumn….

Over the summer and into September the  last two IT training workshops under a Devon Community Foundation Grant to Open DAW were delivered. The final evaluation report is currently being written. Plans are underway for two workshops under a separate grant for helping community groups create their own websites.

Two more electronic community screens went live in Teignmouth and Dawlish. Feedback has been great! More and more posters on events are coming in each month.

Open DAW (Dawlish Community Information Centre) enquiry work and ongoing work at Torbay Hospital Library have been keeping me occupied on a regular basis.

We have also been working on a new contract for creating the Dawlish World War One Project website which commemorates those who died or were casualties in the First World War and came from Dawlish, Holcombe and Cofton. Current work is on the database and finalising the graphical design.

On the voluntary basis I have become a Trustee for Dawlish Arts Festival and produced a newsletter for PORT-ER in the last week or so.

So roll on the autumn!
