I’m sure I don’t need to say that we’re always looking for volunteers for a number of roles in Groups and across the District. If you came to last year’s roadshow, you’ll remember that encouraging people to join us and help run our groups, sections and events is something we all need to do. There’s no magic wand to make volunteers appear, but everything you can do will help. I’m sure you’ve seen some of the national press coverage in the last week which has been really positive for Scouting and Guiding. I spent a few pounds to promote one of our Facebook posts asking for volunteers, and I’ve had three offers of help in the last few days. If you’re on Facebook, do you follow our Page? If you follow it, do you Like and Share our posts? The more likes and shares we get on all posts, not just adverts for volunteers, the more they will be shown to other people and the more effective any advertising we do will be.
If you have news to share from your group either here, in the newsletter or on Facebook, send it to me in an email or post it to the page and we’ll publish it.
