A focus group of local children and young people have provided feedback on the content and search terms. Over 50 local young people voted on the name and domain name for the website via social media. Most of the photographs displayed on the site were kindly produced by photography students at Cambridge Regional College including: Amber Sondhi, Chloe Balcombe, Eleanor Jackson, Joshua Tweddell, Laura Flaherty, Liam Hardingham, Lina Joaquim, Tom Wells and Zoe Dench.
