Thanks to a lot of work from Jon Bounds, new visuals from Citrus Frog and some input from myself, the Birmingham Conservation Trust has a new website.
You may not be surprised to know that it is built entirely on WordPress. Please have a look around and let me know what’s right/wrong etc. The aim is to make better use of the social web to connect better with the many of you I know care about the buildings in our city.
I’ve been a trustee for BCT for about 5 years. If you’re not sure why you might have heard of us we rescued and restored the Back to Backs before handing them over to the National Trust. Currently we are working on the Newman Brothers Coffin Works in Fleet Street.
If you have a passion or curiosity for Birmingham’s building please tag your youtube films or flickr pics birminghamct – they’ll appear on our front page and may even inspire me to blog about what you’re doing. If you’ve got a story or a link you think we should be sharing please e-mail me nick.booth (at) podnosh.com. Likewise if you fancy writing a few blog posts for the trust.
A simple way to support the trust is to also have a good look at our online affiliate shop here. You sign up to Sky we get £70, buy a book on Amazon and we’re more likely to net 7p. Last year our wider family’s xmas shopping raised about £40 for the charity, without us spending anything extra.
Thanks for looking, comments please.
Hey Nick, love how you’ve combined the social networking aspects with the simple clean designs. Great new site.
Thank you Paul – and for the work.
