FANTASTIC Scouting News!

Thanks to all our efforts over the last twelve months, our census return shows what a fantastic state our district is in:

  • 55 more young people are now enjoying Scouting in our district!
  • over 1,000 young people enjoying Scouting in the district every week.
  • we’ve seen a 25% increase in the number of Explorer Scouts – now over 100!
  • more Young Leaders helping in groups – our leaders of the future.
  • 10% more Beaver Scouts – a very healthy base to continue growing from…

4 new sections have opened since this time last year and more are set to open during 2015 – enabling more young people to enjoy all that Scouting has to offer! I would like to thank all those involved in running/supporting new sections.

Particular thanks also to Simon Fancourt, who has worked tirelessly for the last year co-ordinating membership enquiries, delivering leaflets to schools, continuing to support 1st Gadebridge as they grow and taking the lead on the project to re-open 5th Hemel Hempstead.

Here’s a thought too – in the last 2 years, groups/units in Hemel Hempstead have racked up an impressive 11,659 nights away overall!

Please, keep up the great work!

Happy Scouting!
