The result

Coming to Creative Steam, Avon Scouts required a redesign of their existing website to bring it more in touch with current UX & UI trends and to give it an uplift to assist with sourcing information in joining the Scouts and current events & activities on around Bristol and surrounding areas.

Completing both design and build, the website is now built in WordPress. We completed an Eventbrite integration - pulling data from their Eventbrite daily and populating events calendar on site & "Find Scouting Near You" which is a postcode lookup and finds locations where there is a scout hut within a set mile radius with accompanying information.

Happy client

On behalf of Avon Scouts, I would like to thank Creative Steam and in particular Russ Forster (Web Developer) for their design and support of our new County website www.avonscouts.org.uk. Russ in particular has been of immense help, supporting, guiding, training and encouraging us at all times. Launching a website for a volunteer organisation is some respects is very similar to a commercial business in regards to the order, process and implementation. However volunteers do not work 9-5, they work out of business hours and don't get paid for their volunteering, so to get every stakeholder together, to agree has been the biggest challenge we faced - however throughout it all, Russ remained focused, calm and supportive. Thank you.
