Advising all District Commissioners, Mark Edwards, the County Commissioner, said: “The small increase in the County Membership Fee is to help us to develop further as a County, meet our running costs and improve our support to Districts. Some 89.9% of sections are now registered with Online Scout Manager via the County Subscription and this will continue. We also aim to deliver even better activities and improve the support that we give to Districts on a wide range of issues from recruiting to training.”
Your District Executive Committees should now consider their own District Fees or Levy for next year, before advising all of their Scout Groups and Explorer Scout Units of the total fees due and payment deadlines. So expect some important news from your Districts very soon.
We are looking to organise a Making Music day on 1 March 2020 for any young people in the Scout and Guide Counties who can play any instrument. The young people will be invited to express an interest in the event giving details of the instrument they play and the level they have currently achieved. The intention would be to work with them and then put together a short performance at the end of the day. Hopefully from this day other events might develop.
In preparation for this we need to assemble a group of adults and Young Leaders who have musical experience. If you are interested and would like to discuss this further please get in touch.
