Two very special Silver Acorns were recognised at the 104th Edinburgh North East.
Edinburgh North East District currently have two vacancies available on their District Team – District Commissioner and Assistant District Commissioner (Scouts). Are you, or do you know, the right person for these roles?
After completing 60 years in Scouting and having her 80th birthday, Evelyn Torrance of the Pilrig Scout Group rounded off a wonderful few months when the Regional Commissioner came along and presented her with her very first Wood Badge!
ARC Communications, Brian Morrison, was delighted when this story made its way to the Comms Team. “Evelyn was one of the helpers in my Colony when I was a Beaver, and I’m so proud that she’s achieved her Wood Badge! Well done Evelyn!”
Longcraig Scout Centre issued a challenge to all Cub packs in the region to name their new Drascombe boat. The criteria was that the name had to have a “wind” theme. We had a good response from Cub packs across the region and a small panel of Longcraig members chose the winning entry.
Young Leaders with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts
Young Leaders are an extremely useful resource for the younger sections. The experience of being a Young Leader is also extremely rewarding, particularly if all the training is completed, and Young Leaders are one of our main sources for recruiting the adult leaders of the future. The section leader plays a crucial role in giving YLs the opportunity to put their training into practice.

Congratulations to Dave Reid of the 11th Edinburgh North East Group who was recently awarded his 40 year service award!
