As many of you will know we had a big problem over the summer with Rats in our storage area, this has forced us to dispose of most of our camping equipment.

The theme for the event is ‘Promise to Fulfilment’. This is looking at the past, looking how things were, looking at the future and what it holds for us all in Scouting.  We have also changed some elements of the ceremony around. Here is the …
