"I have tell you the very sad news that Brenda Milner has passed away. Brenda was an amazing lady, she served Scouting for over sixty years with over 40 years as our District Badge Secretary.
She had previously been a Cub Scout Leader and then a Group Treasurer and was currently District Badge Secretary, a District Active Support Member, a District Executive Member and a District Appointments Advisory Committee Member as well.
In April 2008 she was awarded the Silver Acorn and in January 2018 she was given the 60 year Good Service Award.
I am sure you join me in thinking of Brian and his family at this sad time, and we will remember them in our prayers."
NEW INFORMATION: Brenda’s funeral will take place at noon on Wednesday 12 December 2018 at St Aidan’s Garrison Church, Hipswell Road, Catterick Garrison, DL9 3BH. Scouting leaders and friends who knew Brenda are welcome to attend and Scout uniform should be worn. Brenda’s family have requested no flowers, but donations should be made to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Once again we will be planning an "Open Day" at Ellerton for Leaders and Permit holders to enable new (and old) leaders to find out what we have to offer, details will be advertised later in the month after the Water team meetings but pencil in the date now - 23rd March.
Also new for this year is a training day for those who wish to deliver the Dragon Boat badge on the 31st March the details of which are being finalised and will be available by the end of the month. The day will follow the Bellboat permit training day on the 30th March.
Please keep watching out for new events being added during the next few months.

Take a look at the NEW County Awards Policy which takes into account recent Scout Association CHANGES for the approval of some important awards that can now be decided WITHIN Scouting Districts.
With decision-making for some awards now delegated to District Commissioners, to support them in their decision-making, they may wish to establish a District Awards Advisory Group/Panel, but are not required to do so. Commissioners can manage awards in their areas in different ways: some may wish to completely devolve the decision-making, while others may wish to take personal responsibility for them. This approach gives Commissioners the flexibility to manage awards in the way that works best for their Districts.
