I am pleased to announce that over the last few months we have increased the County Scout section leadership team, Jon Borzacchiello, Helen and And Hickinbotham have all agreed to come on board to help lead and support the Scout section throughout the County.
We will be focusing on offering a number of County events throughout the year, holding regular County Scout forums, supporting District events, and getting out to visit as many troops throughout the county as possible.
Jon, Helen and Andy all offer a wealth of knowledge and experience and a very diverse scouting skill set, I am very pleased to welcome them on board and with their help I am sure that we will see the County scout section go from strength to strength !!
Yours Jonny Kitching. A.C.C.(scouts)
