Awwwards: Honorable Mention
We’re really proud to share one of our latest project launches – a brand new website for Somerset County Scouts! Built in WordPress and fully responsive, the new website is jam packed with information, features and functionality.

Late in 2016 we were approached by Somerset County Scouts. They were looking for a new website designed to give their 4,000+ young people between the ages of 6 and 25 a place to visit for the latest information, news and events. They also wanted to attract new members and volunteers, as well as providing over 1,000 of their volunteers with training resources and course information. Today, it’s launch day!

The website has been built from the ground up by our team, and features some impressive functionality.

Upcoming Events

A place for members and volunteers to visit to find out what is coming up. The County hold many different events per year, with thousands of members and volunteers attending. The events system also has the option to show featured events, allowing certain ones to stand out. We’ve built shortcodes for these too – it’s as simple as writing [events][/events] in the editor to show events on any page!

Filterable Photo & Video Gallery

Fed straight from WordPress, this custom gallery of photos is filterable by event, section and when they were added. It features lazy-load techniques to ensure a fast page load speed, and only loads photos which are actually being viewed on screen. It’s really easy to upload new photos within WordPress, simply create an event and drag and drop them to upload.

Adult Training Courses & Bookings

It had to be easy for users to filter through adult training courses and see them on a calendar as the team hold training courses virtually every week at many different centres across Somerset! Adult volunteers can also view full course information online before attending.

Find Your Nearest Group

Somerset has over 70 Scout Groups for its 4,000 members. We were challenged with writing functionality that allowed non-members to find their nearest Group via geolocation quickly, before getting in touch. We’ve integrated with the Google Maps API to find the nearest Group to your location and show you details, both in a list and on a map!

Media Manager, Rob Cash, said:

“We are over the moon with our brand new website! The team have been so helpful, and have produced a website we can be really proud about. There are so many great features which will make it so user friendly for those already involved in Scouting and for those wishing to join.”
