The new Fylde Scout Activity Centre facilities booking and management system allows us to:

  • Promote the facilities available at the Activity Centre to the outside world – Visitors to our site can see the facilities available at a glance, with photos of all our main facilities.
  • See availability of the site facilities – At a glance you can see what is booked and when, allowing you to plan your own activities with ease.
  • Allow centralised booking of facilities and activities – With just one place for bookings we’ll avoid confusion over who’s booked in where and when, no more double entry systems or filling in wall charts.
  • Request activity instructors and manages their responses for Climbing, Shooting, Archery etc – When a booking is made that requires activity instructors to be provided from within the district the qualified instructors can be invited to the event with the click of a mouse, each instructor can then respond to the invite with a “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe”. This will allow the activities co-ordinator to manage instructors across all upcoming events.
  • Reminders via Text Message & Email – Activity Instructors, Duty Wardens etc can all receive email and SMS text reminders about upcoming events – all free of charge.
  • List upcoming events at Fylde Scout Activity Centre such as open days & district sectional meetingsDistrict Leaders can book their next meeting in the meeting room, invite all the leaders from their section and have the details emailed to them automatically all with a few clicks of the button.
  • View the information relevant to YOU on your PC, Smart Phone or Tablet – Each facility has its own “Google Calendar” allowing you to subscribe to the calendars that interest you – Got a Climbing Permit? Then subscribe to the Climbing Wall calendar so you can see when it’s in use and when you can help! Duty Warden? Subscribe to the wardens calendar and see who’s using the site and when.
