The opening of our AGM started with a reflection for Keith Hyde, Roger Jones, Paul Willicombe, Alan Bollingham, Caryl Roach and Ian Robinson who are no longer with us. They all gave great dedication to Scouting and are greatly missed.
Cathie Steele, Acting Area Commissioner has announced a 11.3% growth in the number of young people in the area compared to 2022, this is down to our amazing leaders and their exciting activity programmes.
845.5% growth in Squirrels
4.4% growth in Beavers
2.6% growth in Cubs
11% growth in Scouts
16.4% growth in Explorers
It’s not all good though, the number of young people on waiting lists has increased by 21%. We need more adult volunteers to join us and help bring this number down. See how you can get involved.
And finally congratulations to all those who were presented with awards or recignised for their service to Scouting.
