It’s been another busy term for all of you; I’ve loved hearing all about your adventures with Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and The Senior Section and have also enjoyed my many invitations to get out and about in the Region visiting your events. It’s always a pleasure to say well done and thank you to our very special volunteers without whom none of the excitement, fun and adventure of guiding would be possible. It’s also an enormous honour for me to be invited to your achievement award evenings for our young members. Congratulations to all who have achieved awards and qualifications this year and thank you to all those who have supported them to do so.
Whilst you take time to recharge your guiding batteries over the summer, remember to book in some time with your Unit Leader team to focus on the new guiding year to come. Is the risk assessment of your meeting place up to date? Do you have enough adult support to cover all eventualities? Do you need to update your qualifications or refresh your programme ideas? Are you charging enough subs to cover your outgoings? Do you need to ask for help keeping your unit accounts? Why not set aside the first week in September for a Leader team meeting on your usual unit meeting night?
Eid Murbarak to all those who will be celebrating the end of the Ramadan in the next few days and a very happy summer to everyone!
