Bluebell Railway

Bluebell Railway in Sheffield Park, East Sussex, is one of Sussex's leading tourist attractions. It is the first preserved standard gauge passenger railway in the UK and runs many events, as well as meals in their Golden Arrow Pullman Train.

The organisation is owned and run by a trust, and the previous website was managed by volunteers and targeted at rail enthusiasts. In 2010 the commercial arm of the organisation commissioned Blue Planet to design and build a separate content-managed website that incorporated back-end administration tools and reporting facilities.

What we did

By truly understanding the requirements of the business, we have designed and built a website that is increasing bookings and helping productivity.

A bespoke content management system enables staff to retain complete control over the content of the website. Integration of an events module and booking system (complete with seating plans for their dining cars) has improved efficiency in back office operations.

A phase 2 development is now being discussed to consider how best to completely integrate the website into their remaining existing systems to further improve efficiency of staff time.

Birdineye Farm

The Berry family has been farming at Birdineye Farm in East Sussex since 1908. Peter Berry now produces meat and fresh vegetables from the farm which is sold in two local farm shops. His daughter Jo Berry manages the shops and sells her own delicious home-baked cakes and pastries.

Blue Planet was asked to design and develop a fully content-managed website that was easy to update and search engines-friendly.

What we did

Following an initial planning and design brief meeting with the client, we produced a bespoke design to reflect the ethos and passion of the farm and the work they do.

We then integrated the design into a content management system, enabling the client to update the website whenever they want.

We are now talking to the client about how our Website Review Programme can help them get the most out of the website and provide them with the best return on their investment.

What we did

Following our initial consultation with Barry, to establish how he could best use to web to enhance his business, we scoped out a specification for the design and development of a blog-based website that Barry can update easily wherever he happens to be.

This gives him the opportunity to post new content to his website of different types and lengths - either using social media for shorter contributions or his blog for longer, more detailed pieces.
