About This Site

This site was started in February 1999 by "Hudge", for a long time it lived at www.misbourne-vssu.org.uk as the website of the MISBOURNE VENTURE SEA SCOUTS, but when the new programme was launched by HQ and we had to change our name to the Misbourne Sea Scout Explorer Unit, we decided that instead of changing the "vssu" we were just going to lose it and become www.misbourne.org.uk.

The current version of the site was launched shortly after the 10th Anniversary of the Misbourne Website, in Misbourne's 45th year. During those 10 years a lot has changed, but Misbourne has always been quick to adopt new approaches to using the internet to manage the unit. The latest step is focussed on encouraging online co-operation beyond Misbourne's borders with other explorer groups, and the local Scout Network Hubs.

The site is written in Python, using the Django framework, and wherever possible it follows the DIP principle.
