THE camping season is now in full swing. I have been so impressed with the camp programmes you have provided for your sections. We were all soaked to the skin at the Orwell District Scout Camp and Beaver sleepover but it didn’t seem to stop the fun. Well done Leaders!

The Lowestoft Reunion Camp which officially opens the camping season at Herringfleet was a day to remember - I had the privilege to open the newlybuilt welfare block. The campfire which was run by Explorer Scouts was also good fun.

The Suffolk Show was busy again this year and the weather was kind to us. Many thanks to the Deben and Orwell Leaders who helped out on both days

I have attended lots of AGMs this year. Many Group AGMs have been very disappointing due to the inexperience of the Executive and the lack of parents
attending. Group Scout Leaders, can I please ask you to encourage your Executive members to attend the training module which will be held at Hallowtree in October. There will be much advice on running meetings and AGMs.

There have already been two meetings of the Executive Committee for Moot VI in 2017. The Countdown will start in January. Get the date in your diary now for the August Bank Holiday weekend 2017.

Constable Cabin, the new building at Bradfield Campsite, was officially opened on 27th June. We received good press coverage and the mayors of West Suffolk and the Chairmen of the District Councils were all very impressed with what they saw. Leaders who have seen the building are looking forward to using it during the season. Bookings can be made through Bill Evans, the Warden and Booking Clerk, on
