Baden-Powell Statue in Poole
The Baden-Powell Scouts' Association (B-PSA) are aware that Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole (BCP) Council have made the decision to place the Baden-Powell statue on Poole Quay in to safe storage. The B-PSA is committed to equality, and that commitment is enshrined in our Scout Promise and Law. We know that the statue is valued by Scouts from across the world when they journey to Brownsea Island to visit the site of the first experimental Scout camp, and we hope that it will be returned soon.
Chief Commissioner - Baden-Powell Scouts’ Association
The B-PSA’s primary concern is the safety and welfare of it’s members and with the current guidance from the Prime Minister regarding avoiding unnecessary social contact, the National Committee advises all Groups to suspend meetings, outings and camps until further notice.
