We began the new year yesterday evening with a meeting for all leaders, volunteers and parents.
We have a great year ahead! There were some changes in leadership - Lewis stood down as District Coordinator after steering the district through some challenging times, the Covid pandemic for example. His place has been taken by Cornelia, who was our Elfin leader for many years. And to complete our strong leadership team John remains as Membership Secretary and Treasurer; Ian is looking after Health & Safety and Safeguarding; Cris, Anna and Thea will be responsible for resources and equipment; our Elfin group will be lead by Thea, Lewis, Emily and Anna and our Pioneers and Venturers by Kate, Ruairidh and Ian. We also set up an outreach and marketing team that will be led by Shushanah, Mia, Cris and Lewis. Kate, Emily and Lewis are our First Aiders.
We will also be joined by three Duke of Edinburgh volunteers - Sefi, Olivia and Hannah (who was one of our Elfins). They will be helping with the Elfin group as well as applying their youthful social media skills to help the marketing team.
We have a full programme of exciting activities planned for the term and camps/weekend trips booked for October, December, February, May and July. We're looking forward to another amazing year.
