All Summer Long We Sang Our Song….

Hi All and welcome back after a long hot summer.

What a summer of scouting it has been for Milton Keynes. I have really enjoyed your social media posts over the last months. Looking at your photos and posts has been great, I can’t wait to hear your stories of adventure. How many 1000s of miles? How many 1000s of smiles.

This is one of my favourite times of year for Scouting, wringing the most out of the end of summer and planning different adventures for the dark nights. The ADC team has been hard at work over the summer planning next years, hikes, competition camps, day trips. Please look at the calendar on the website when planning your programs. District activities are there for everyone to enjoy, we run them to bring everyone together to encourage fun, team work, competition and learning new skills. We do this at minimum cost and best they are activities that you as leaders don’t have to organise.

This week sees the opening of a new Beaver colony in Loughton, well done to everyone who has helped get this off the ground, lets hope it’s the first of many. We are constantly looking for ways to get more children involved and reduce the waiting this isn’t something we are doing on our own County, Region and HQ are supporting us. We will keep you informed, exciting times.

Later in the month is the District AGM. Just like your Scout group the District needs a strong executive committee to run if you think you could or know someone who can help out please contact Pat Pankhurst for a nomination form. It’s almost the end of AGM season, from me a huge thank you for the time and effort you put into your Annual General Meetings. In the planning they can seem a drag and just a hoop to jump through. But I have enjoyed everyone of them, the meeting is what it has to be. But the celebrations, badges awarded, campfires, village fates and BBQ make them a special event.

There is lots of information from our County team about next year’s huge camp, 00Bucks. This is shaping up to be one of the biggest Scouting events in decades. MK will be a sub camp on its own and we are working to make it the biggest, best and most fun sub camp. It’s time to fly our flag and show the rest of Buckinghamshire how great we are. Our challenge is to have 1000+ from MK.
