From the County Commissioner:

Welcome to this newsletter which focuses almost in its entirety on transformation – at present the hottest topic in scouting.
First and foremost, I would like to thank Colin Winter, who is leading the county on all matters relating to transformation. Colin is working tirelessly on our behalf to ensure that Suffolk is up to speed with the transformation agenda. He is supported by a small team of District Transformation Leads……but not enough of them. If your District is without such a person, do please volunteer for this important role; fear not – all transformation leads, including Colin will be in-situ for a relatively short period of time!

I am looking to fill two important roles – County Youth Commissioner and Deputy County Commissioner (Programme). Please drop me a line if you are interested.

The county census is nearly complete. Many thanks to all those of you who have been involved in the process. The data from the census will be properly published in due course but I can tell you that the early signs are encouraging; numbers are up and scouting in Suffolk continues to thrive.

I wish you every success during 2024.

Howard Blackett,

County Commissioner
