Coronavirus (COVID-19) - We are currently in the Green Readiness Level which means that all activities can resume. Residential activities and international travel may also take place. For the latest updates, please check out the Scouts website.

What are the advantages of using privately hosted email?

  • With a custom domain name such as firstname.surname@1stgrafton.org.uk, Parents and outside organisations can be a lot more confident of your identity when receiving emails. Anyone can set up a free Gmail or Hotmail account with something similar to 1stgraftonscouts@gmail.com and pose as a leader. We want to make sure our adult members are protected from identity theft and safeguard our young people from imposters.
  • A Scouting email address allows you to manage and maintain a Scout-Life balance by keeping your Scouting mailbox separate from your personal inbox.
  • It looks professional. Quite often Scouting will lead you to have contact and dealings with public officials, MPs, Councillors, Business leaders and having your own custom scout email address will give a much better impression.
  • When your group sign up for the system, you will automatically get an address book of all the people in your own group as well the District Team which will update as people join the organisation and leave – so you can always get hold of the people you need to.
  • Centrally managed distribution lists can be setup so that you can be confident everyone who is supposed to receives your email.
