The Canvey Island community archive website was launched in April 2008. The group had selected CommunitySites software following a demonstration of different community heritage software on offer round the country. After only three months online the site was one of the regional winners in the Nationwide Community & Heritage Awards.
More than ten years later, the site continues to celebrate the history of the island through nearly five thousand pages of information and photos. The site was updated to open-source software and mobile-friendly design in 2019.
