How 1st Shiremoor Scout Group rebranded their website

Over the past few months, we’ve worked with 1st Shiremoor Scout Group on their brand new website in the Skills for Life branding, with a great result!

26th June 2020
Towards the end of last year, 1st Shiremoor got in touch with us to find out what we could do for them in terms of building them a new website and improve their online presence.

Having originally showed interest in a new Scouts website, having entering our free website competition last year, we had been in talks with them for a number of months about their requirements for a brand new website.

The team at 1st Shiremoor were especially interested in a website that would prove to be cost effective, benefit from ongoing support, and our expert advice, in comparison to a friend of the Group building it for free. Our blog perfectly explains why choosing a digital agency can prove to be a better investment for you Group.

1st Shiremoor, is home to over 60 young people from the area of North Tyneside. This year, the popular Scout Group celebrate their 70th anniversary. Having a website was an essential step in modernising their communications.

We worked with 1st Shiremoor over a number of months to build their website in the Skills for Life branding. Their new site is an online space that caters for their everyday and long term Scouting needs.

How their Scout Website came together

  • The team at 1st Shiremoor provided all of the content in a highly organised manner, with a thread for each page and sub-pages grouped together. This meant that content was easily navigable by our team, and we knew exactly how 1st Shiremoor wanted their pages to form, resulting in a more efficient process which required fewer amends.
  • By using a mix of high quality stock imagery provided by The Scouts along with their own Group photos, we have created a professional looking website which is sure to appeal to new & prospective members whilst being personal to leaders, members and parents.
  • Taking advantage of our various tools and elements such as buttons, accordions and buckets streamline their website, improving user experience. This is especially useful for websites like 1st Shiremoor who’s website is content-heavy.
  • Integrating with features like OSM help all of your systems work in harmony and benefit each other, automating things such as programme and events, and in turn reducing admin time.

“From first contact with Tom, to regular contact with Amelia the communication with and the professionalism of Scout Websites was first class.

Tom was excellent on the phone explaining the service provided and how it would work, he provided full details required for the executive committee to make their decision.
At every point through the build process (which happened during Covid-19 lockdown) Amelia was there adding new content, making changes and offering guidance along with suggestions on what would look good and work best for us.

Basecamp was very easy to use, it enabled us to keep on top of what was needed and transfer the content easily.

We have been live a couple weeks now and the support materials have enabled us to make small changes and give us confidence working with WordPress moving forward. We are thrilled with the end result and have a website that can support the group going forward.
