Our Story

Clear, honest and professional

Having worked for software houses, website design and marketing companies over the last decade we decided to form The Digital Grapevine.  It was important to us to create a company that reflects our values and goals. Since launching we have built our company around our commitment to excellent customer service with a straightforward, honest approach.

We are proud of our track record helping charities and small businesses create a valuable web presence. Where possible we like to meet our clients to get to know them and their business. We have an ever expanding client base in Thornbury and Gloucestershire but have clients all over the UK, including Birmingham and Derby.

We have a great client network which means we can put different clients in touch with each other to help all our businesses thrive. Don’t just take our word for it, we are more than happy to provide references and testimonials from our happy customers.
