NEW ACC SCOUTS

I would like to say hello to everyone and introduce myself as the new Assistant County Commissioner for the Scout Section in Nottinghamshire.

Stewart SmithI have been involved in Scouting for over 30 years, having joined as a Cub, continued through Scouts and Venture Scouts before becoming a Leader.  I gained my Queen’s Scout Award and was also selected to represent Worksop District for the jamboree in 1979. As a young person I always had an active role in Group, District and County events.

As a Leader I have worked with Scout and Explorer sections before taking on several District roles within the old Worksop and Retford District’s and latterly the new Bassetlaw District.  Over the years, as a Leader, I have supported young people and adults in their scouting, as well as organizing many camps and activities both in the UK and abroad.

As I start in my new role I intend to get around the County and visit all the Districts as soon as possible, so I can meet as many young people and Leaders to get an over view of activities and programs the section is currently offering its young people within Nottinghamshire.

I hope you will support me in my new role and I am looking forward to working with everyone in the future.

Stewart Smith

Assistant County Commissioner for Scouts

PUBLIC AFFAIRS

HoPThe 19th issue of the Public Affairs Bulletin is available to download here.

Harry, Tom and John are still looking for additional people to join the Public Affairs team as a Public Affairs Ambassador. They are looking to better reflect the demographic profile of Nottinghamshire Scouts and therefore would particularly welcome expressions of interest from girls and any Explorers from the ethnic minorities but they would still like to hear from anyone who might be interested.
