Join the South East Scotland Scouts Regional Leadership Team and Regional Executive Committee for our first post-COVID face-to-face meeting.
To help develop plans for implementing the strategy at the Regional and District levels we will be holding an in-person Regional Leadership meeting on Sunday 28th August at Bonaly from 3pm. This will be an opportunity for members of the Regional Leadership Team and Regional Executive Committee to meet together, share ideas and learn more about what is happening in Scouting across the Region.
Our current Regional Strategy was launched in 2018 alongside the UK Scouts and Scouts Scotland Skills For Life strategies and was originally scheduled to run until 2023.
However, a lot has happened since 2018. None of us could have predicted the effect that COVID would have not just on Scouting but globally. As a result, the Regional Executive Committee agreed in 2020 to extend the existing strategy to 2025 and to move its short-term focus to support Groups and Districts recovering and rebuild from the effects of the pandemic.
Since then we have seen further changes such as the introduction of the new Squirrels section so we saw this as an appropriate time to review the existing strategy and update it to reflect Scouting in South East Scotland in 2022.
We have worked with a wide range of stakeholders from Regional, District and Group leadership teams as well as our Regional Centres to ensure that this strategy is best placed to allow us to provide Skills for Life to as many young people in South East Scotland as possible.
Location: Chalet, Bonaly Scout Centre
Format: 3pm-5pm meeting followed by a BBQ and refreshments kindly organised by the Bonaly ASU members.
