Web design services
Ross Burgess, trading as Foxearth IT Solutions, maintains a number of websites, mainly for voluntary groups associated with the LGBT community in Croydon and South London. However he's now largely retired, and not normally looking to take on extra work.
LGBT Social and community groups
Current sites we maintain include the following:
- Aurora — Croydon's LGBT Police Consultation Group
- CAGS (Croydon Area Gay Society)
- CHE (Campaign for Homosexual Equality).
- Gay Authors Workshop — a group of LGBT creative writers
- GLAM (Gay, Lesbian and Mensan)
- LGBT Croydon — a portal for local LGBT groups (currently suspended)
- Rainbow Reading Group — LGBT reading group in Croydon

Some other sites:
- In 2005, Roger and Ross celebrated their civil partnership on the first day that the law allowed (they later converted it to a marriage).
- We arranged some re-enactments of ancient church ceremonies for uniting two people of the same sex (archived version).
- Roger and Peter celebrated their wedding in Falkland in 2019, with a ceremony in Croydon a week later.
- And Ross is an active contributor to Wikipedia and to the UK LGBT Archive.
- Ross previously maintained the websites for UNACC (The Upper Norwood Association for Community Care) and Age UK Croydon.
in 2008, Ross created two social networking sites: lgbtcroydon.ning.com and lgbtlondon.ning.com. These had 103 and 215 members respectively when they were discontinued in August 2010 as a result of a change in the Ning company's pricing policy. He subsequently assisted with the LGBT London website, maintained by the LGBT Consortium, until this was discontinued through lack of funding.
