5 Somerset Scouts websites have launched!

Somerset County, East Somerset, Blackdown and Moors & Coastal Districts and Huish Woods Campsite have all recently launched new websites.

09th August 2019
We’ve worked closely with Somerset Scouts over the past few years on their huge County website along with a number of Groups and Districts across Somerset on older versions of their websites.

After a successful build and launch of West Monkton Scout Group late last year, Somerset County returned to us for a complete overhaul of their own. Three other District and Campsites across the county signed up for rebrands as well, with East Somerset District joining us as a new client.

Somerset Scouts has over 4,000 members supported by about 1,000 adult volunteers, covering the whole of Somerset.

Blackdown, Moors & Coastal, and East Somerset Districts all join Huish Woods Campsite and Somerset County as websites that have recently launched. With the main aim to boost recruitment and improve communication across the County, the websites demonstrate a refined and on-brand digital presence.

Some of the features include:

  • County or District Team pages – These pages allow your users to get to know your team better, with sections for their Scout role, a short biography and an image of your leaders or executives
  • Bookable adult training events – Adult training events that are easily bookable allow both leaders and organisers to keep track of any upcoming events as well as pay online or register their interest
  • Bespoke forms – As well as customisable Contact and Join forms, we also offer the creation of bespoke forms such as register of interest or booking enquiry forms, these are useful for all kinds of websites including Districts and Campsites

The new website(s) mean that the whole of Somerset county is now inline with the new Skills for Life branding, and completely uniform across the District, County and supporting Campsites – providing an unparalleled level of consistency when navigating from one website to another.

Of his previous website, Assistant County Commissioner, Matt Ellett, said:

“We committed to a new site a few months ago with Scout Websites and have been extremely happy with the outcome and service we have received. Our new on-brand website seamlessly integrates with Online Scout Manager, provides a secure members area, collates join requests and allows our members to purchase events, removing the need for us to handle money. I would like to say a huge thank you to the team for the countless conversations, supporting us to create a website on such a tight timescale. They always find the time to speak to us, works hard to find solutions to problems and keeps us informed of everything going on.”
