Through the years with Have-u-Heard

Take a journey back through time with North Yorkshire Scouts “Have-u-Heard”!
To celebrate the remarkable publication of the 300th edition of “Have-u-Heard”, here's a look right back to Issue No.1 published in December 1991.
The slider will advance a year at a time every 30 seconds - hover over to see the arrows which you can use to move back and forward in time, or click a year to jump straight there.
There's lots of stuff to jog your memory - prices of things at the time, names you will remember, and of course Scouting events.

We promise that you WILL find yourself saying "I can't believe that was that long ago!"

    Congratulations

    Stephen Roberts of Filey Scout Troop achieved runner up in the UNICEF UNITE greeting card competition
    You will also be delighted to learn that Garth Morrison, our Chief Scout, was appointed C.B.E. in the Queen's New Years Honours list.

    Bank of Scotland

    You will remember that this scheme was to put money into the Scout Association every time you used your card.
    In recent months they have started to charge £7.50 for the privilege of using their card.
    Perhaps rather than Pay the Bank of Scotland, we should covenant this amount to the Scout Association, it might be more beneficial to us?

    Farewell Visit - Chief Scout

    The farewell visit to the County of the Chief Scout, Sir Garth Morrison, took place on 14th January 1996.
    It was an excellent occasion for North Yorkshire County Scouts, especially for the 700+ who were able to attend, because all of us derived inspiration and pleasure in meeting old and new friends by taking part in the activities and by the opportunity to thank the Chief Scout for all he has done for Scouting over the last 8 years.

    World Scout Jamboree – Chile

    Units are establishing good ‘Teamwork’ skills, building confidence and having fun along the way! The U.K. Contingent has about 1,500 young people and 200 adults including Guides, British Scouts of Western Europe, and members from Bermuda, Falklands, and Cayman Islands.
    They will join an estimated 28,000 other people from across the World for the 10 day Jamboree.

    The Young Leader Scheme

    Despite the success of the Young Leader Scheme in this County and the recent article by Eric Fell in Scouting Magazine which has generated interest in several areas throughout the County, there are still many young people in North Yorkshire who would benefit from the project.
    Remember, it is a good way of getting help for your Section. Youngsters do not have to already be a member of the Movement so why not contact your local Schools and Youth Clubs to spread the word that this might be a useful form of service for those involved in the D of E Scheme?

    Re-Start Communications

    It has been suggested with the coming of the Internet and Email that sending “have-u-heard” electronically might be an easier and quicker way of disseminating information directly to Groups.
    We aim to try this out shortly to those people requesting it, although we do not intend to cease producing the written issue. If your Group wishes to embark on this method simply let us know at the County Office.

    Calling all Venture Scouts

    There are conflicting reports from TOOKAY Camp Team Leaders and from Venture Scouts. One side is saying “No one is volunteering to help at the Camp” The other side says “We have volunteered but no-one is using us”.
    To set the record straight we DO NEED YOUR HELP. If you have anytime to spare between 29th July and 5th August 2000 can I ask you to contact any of the Camp Team Leaders involved with this County Camp.

    Good Communication is a wonderful thing!

    From a Radio Communication released by the American Navy:
    Caller 1: Please divert your Course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision
    Caller2 : Recommend you divert your Course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
    Caller 1: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship, divert your course.
    Caller 2: No, I say again, you divert your Course.
    Caller 1: This is the Aircraft Carrier Enterprise, we are a large Warship, divert your course NOW!
    Caller 2: This is a Lighthouse, suggest YOU divert your course...but it's your call!!

    100th Edition

    This is the 100th Edition of have-u-heard. A little more than a year or two ago, the County Executive Committee agreed to trial this as a new publication for a period of three months to, hopefully, help with Communications across and around the County.
    It ended up as a trial that lasted a LITTLE longer than anticipated. Is it time for a change? Does this publication assist or hamper communications? Is the trial period over?
    Only you – the reader - knows how valuable (or not) this publication is!

    Your views are sought

    The General Purposes and Finance Committee has been considering the idea that Adult Training within the County should be “Free at the Point of Delivery”. The idea has been adopted in other Counties and seems to work well.
    The estimated cost of achieving this would be an increase of £1.00 to £1.50 on the County Levy. Do you think this is a good idea, or do you object to it?
    Please let County Office know your opinion NOW.
