Congratulations to Diane Ross on being awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in recognition of her service to Scouting and to the community in Edinburgh.
Diane was a Leader for the Cub Scout 80th Birthday item in the Edinburgh Gang Show 1996, was instrumental in the organisation and running of the Junior Gang when it was established in 1997 and remains an ardent Gang Show supporter.
Her leadership and commitment to Gang Show, as well as many other responsibilities in Scouting, is inspirational. Thank you Diane for your service and here’s to many more years of Scouting fun!

This month the Region achieved its Foundation Youth Approved award from Scouts Scotland. We are over the moon with this award and shall be displaying it on most of our future comms and putting the certificate in the reception of Bonaly.
For those of you not too familiar with the Youth Approved Award, the Region had to:
- Have a Regional Youth Advisory Group – and the fact that makes us even prouder about these extraordinary 13 young people is that they represent all 7 Districts giving a true spread of experience and opinions.
- Appoint a Youth Commissioner – Euan McFadzean was appointed at the first meeting and has been working his socks off supporting the group and working with the Districts and Scottish to involve more young people.
- Have a method of communicating with Young People – Social Media is our gateway to getting young people involved and getting information to them, and with this is mind we will be improving how we use social media to this end.
Above all, we must mention all the incredible Groups and Sections within our Region who have achieved Foundation and Bronze – we are so proud.
