Saint George’s Day Message
It has only been six weeks since I proudly accepted your National Committee’s invitation to take on the role of Chief Commissioner, and it has started as I hope it will continue – hectically. Through
meetings, training courses and visits I have already met Scouters and young members from 24 Groups in the Association as far apart as the South coast of England and the Scottish Borders. If that hasn’t included your Group yet, I really hope to meet you soon.
In this short message I would like to thank Mercia Area for inviting me to join them at their Area St. George’s Day Parade, I look forward to seeing you there. For those who I won’t be able to be with this weekend, enjoy your celebrations of Scouting’s Saints Day, wherever you are.
Congratulations to all those receiving special awards this weekend. Thank you for your efforts on behalf of the Baden-Powell Scouts’ Association.
