As part of a National Heritage Lottery Fund project, St Mary’s Church, Frittenden, focused on improving accessibility and amenities. This included updating the existing church guides and creating digital versions available for download from an Info-point. Over time, a smartphone tour and other interpretation materials were created by the team of volunteers. Two live webcam streams are also available via the Info-Point to indicate to the organist when the bride is arriving at weddings.
We have a very active team of volunteers with varying levels of digital expertise. The Info-Point gives us the independence to manage our own church and heritage information in the future, with the comfort of the manufacturer’s free technical support. We are hoping to hold a ‘show and tell’ event in the future to help others in the Diocese to understand how to use this technology.Jeremy Beech, St Mary’s Church
