First Choice Homes Oldham collaborated with local residents of the West Street Area in Coldhurst, Oldham, to create an online ‘place history’ platform to celebrate the 50-year period and beyond of two tower blocks: Summervale House and Crossbank House (1975 – 2022). This digital community project created a digital archive with a focus on time; enabling the local community to collaboratively research and share their local heritage while building their digital skills.

Digital Heritage Hub is managed by Arts Marketing Association (AMA) in partnership with The Heritage Digital Consortium and The University of Leeds. It has received Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and National Lottery funding, distributed by The Heritage Fund as part of their Digital Skills for Heritage initiative. Digital Heritage Hub is free and answers small to medium sized heritage organisations most pressing and frequently asked digital questions.
