The new Colin the Coastguard website was rebuilt with lots of new content. The site is based on the WordPress platform and uses a theme builder. It enabled the website to be designed in the same style as the already published series of books. We were able to introduce lots of interactive elements for the young audience.
The new site now features many graphics and activities produced to help HM Coastguard promote safety messages to young people. A dedicated page provides pictures, posters and activities to download all based around staying safe when at the coast.
Other sections explore coastguard history based around the fictional town of Tideswell and its infamous past residents. Along the Coast with Colin explores environmental issues and includes lots of little quizzes to complete online.
The site also includes a WooCommerce shop for the series of books.
