The Guernsey Scout Association’s new website is now live.
The website has been redesigned by local design agency, Rock and Small, and built by Enrapture to be mobile friendly and to include the rebranding that the National Scout organisation has undergone, highlighting how the Scouts are fun, have a keen sense of adventure and are still very relevant today.
Bailiwick parents can use the website to find out which section their children can attend, locate their nearest group using the map feature and understand the programme of activities each unit organises. Each of the different sections: Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers each have a page to make it easier to find what users are looking for.
Volunteers are essential to the running of the Scouts and anyone who would like to volunteer can use the website to view opportunities or contact the scouts to offer to help. Volunteering can be sharing skills with a group, planning a one-off session or being involved with committee; all volunteers make a difference to young people’s lives and the website makes it easy to get involved.
Bailiwick Commissioner, Nick Paluch, said: “The new look includes our more modern logo in addition to hashtags and straplines which emphasise the scout’s focus on building skills for life and enjoying the outdoors.
“We are very pleased with the vibrant new design of the website which makes it much easier to search for practical information about our different groups, the scout shop and contact details but also provides information about the activities, camps and trips that are part and parcel of the scouting experience.
“The website is our shop window, showcasing how we provide adventures, enjoyment and a sense of belonging to children right across the island.”
