County Appointments Meeting
Welcome to the online home of Scouting in Suffolk. We'll aim to bring you all the latest news and resources we can to help you in the day to day fun, challenges and adventures in Scouting, regardless if you're a parent, young person or leader!
We hope you find this website useful and if there’s something you would like to see, something we have spelled wrongly or you just want to let us know about something, then please get in touch via the "Contact Us" links!
Spaces - 2015 Round Britain CruiseThere are still a few berths left on the Adventures Offshore sail training yachts ‘Ocean Scout’ & ‘Offshore Scout’ on their 2015 Round Britain Cruise.
Adventures Offshore - Offers
There are spaces on the Edinburgh to Inverness, Belfast to Milford Haven and Milford Haven to Plymouth legs of the cruise. See attached flyer or website for more details.
Prices have been reduced and any Explorer, Network, Leader, Helper or Parent is invited to contact Adventures Offshore if interested.
This is a great opportunity to experience big boat sailing in totally different parts of the Uk.
Jenny's Journal - May 15IT’S fabulous to have the light nights and spring-like weather with us at last. The camping season will be in full swing soon and it is timely to remind you all of the Policy on alcohol Policy Organisation and Rules 2.4.d “During ‘off duty’ periods, adults in Scouting also need to take into account the effects alcohol can have and how it may affect their fitness to fulfil their Scouting duties. “Under no circumstances should young people under the age of 18 be allowed to consume alcohol during Scouting events.” Please do keep this in mind.
Our numbers dipped this year in the Annual Census and the County is 1% down on membership from last year. Some Districts did exceedingly well in spite of what has happened with Compass! Keith Gleen is busy with the Growth Certificates and I look forward to presenting them.

We welcome any Scouting stories and can polish up the words if you give us the basic facts... and we like pictures too !
- The next copy of County News is Jul-Aug 2015. Copy is required by 28th Jun 2015.
NOTE: Could you also send any pictures as JPEG files rather than embedding them in Word documents as it saves a lot of time and will result in a better quality image appearing in the final product.
