Beechwood Hall and Rural Park is a primarily community orientated space in the village of Cooksbridge, near Lewes in East Sussex. With a large playing field, fantastic children’s playground and a modern hall available for community use and private hire, there’s something to suit everyone. That’s without mentioning the views across the countryside to the South Downs, or the fact that the hall is powered almost entirely by renewable energy sources.
I was approached by the Secretary at Beechwood Hall and asked to work on a new website for them to promote and market their facilities, both as a community hub and a venue for hire. The site was to replace a small section that they had previously on the local community website which was looking dated and was too small to show off everything they had to offer.
After a meeting with the secretary, I began work on the new website. I provided the domain, hosting and the website itself, featuring a clean and fresh layout and a green/brown colour scheme based around the existing logo and the rural location of the Hall. The website is designed to offer all the information you might need, whether you’re looking to hire the hall, visit the park or go along to a community event. On top of the pages shown to visitors, there’s also a ‘Trustees’ section, where documents such as meeting minutes, agendas and policies can be uploaded and shared securely with the Board of Trustees. I also provided the photography featured on the homepage.
