"Following advice from the County Appointments Advisory Committee, I am pleased to announce the appointment with immediate effect of NEIL UNDERWOOD as Deputy County Commissioner (Activities).
This is a new role, the purpose of which is to provide a strategic oversight of our adventurous and creative activities provided by our fantastic County activity teams. Lead activity coordinators and advisers will be appointed Assistant County Commissioners for their respective areas in the autumn term and an away day for the new team will be held very soon.
A former and highly successful Assistant County Commissioner (Cub Scouts), Neil brings a wealth of Scouting expertise, as well as considerable leadership and management skills to this new appointment. I am sure that he will have your full support in his new Scouting role where he will aim to improve further the delivery of the full range of activities that the County offers its young members."
It’s hoped that Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, adult helpers, supporters and leaders from every section in every Scouting District of the County will collect litter on this day showing Scouts cleaning up North Yorkshire and our community spirit at its very best. A uniformed badge will be given to all young members who take part, for which there will be a competition to design an appropriate badge.
The impact we could have across the County is considerable and so all Districts and Groups are requested to engage fully with this exciting initiative and to avoid all local Scouting activities on Sunday 2 June 2019.
Following the litter-pick and throughout the following week, which is National Volunteers’ Week, the County will embark on a dedicated recruitment campaign for young members and leaders. Once again, it’s hoped that all Districts and Groups will take part in this campaign at the same time to maximise impact and to achieve some amazing results.
No excuses and plenty of time to plan these events into your programmes, so put these dates in your diary NOW!
Autumn is in the air - and so are 'nights away' questions and assessments.
