5th Newbold Scout Group came to us for a brand new website in the Skills for Life branding that could cater for all of its requirements.
The main issue with their previous website was an outdated booking system which was difficult to use, especially for their annual Santa’s grotto, and completely separate from the website itself.
We introduced a sophisticated online shop so they could manage all of their ticket orders for each day and time over the Christmas period in one place. Although 5th Newbold uses Stripe, the shop has the ability to accept other various payment methods such as WorldPay and PayPal.
The shop functionality exports all orders and relevant information into an organised spreadsheet for improved organisation and sales.
Using a combination of our bespoke functionality and standard content, we created a seamlessly integrated online space that holds all of their elements together. These simple yet effective changes mean that the website is much more user friendly and easily accessible.
The website, as a whole, has many more necessary features a Scout Group could need such as online join, hall hire enquiry, and contact forms with a host of information pages so both members of the group and people wanting to join can find what they need to know with ease.
We’ve solved problems by:
- Improving the enquiry and booking process of hiring out their hall. The website includes a visible availability calendar and form to allow users to easily submit a booking enquiry.
- Boosting recruitment and membership of adult volunteers and young people via an online join form.
- Hiding sensitive information behind a password-protected area for members and leaders where they can easily access important documents, links and files.
