Celebrating another great year….


As the festive season approaches, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the last year and to say a huge thank you to all of our leaders and supporters across Birmingham for everything you’ve done, for all the experiences you’ve given to our young people, and for how you’ve each helped to make Scouting within Birmingham so fantastic.

With every year that passes, our young people are being given more and more opportunities to experience adventure and to grow as individuals and develop skills that will hold them in good stead as they go through life.  As I look back at 2017, the sheer variety of activities that take place at Group, District and County never ceases to amaze me and I’m deeply impressed by our leaders creativity and their commitment to delivering great programmes week in, week out, throughout the year.

On behalf of all of our young people who are members of Scouting within Birmingham, can I please thank each and every one of our leaders for everything you’ve done throughout 2017.

As the festivities approach, I hope you’ll all be able to take some time out to relax, enjoy time with your family and friends and return in 2017 invigorated and ready for another excellent Scouting year….

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
