Welcome to Somerset Scouts
I am proud to be taking on the role of County Commissioner following Liz being recruited to be the Chief Commissioner of England. Grateful thanks to Liz who had worked hard to create a strong county, recognising she had been talent hunted by the UK team.
The County is actively moving out of our pandemic operation and our groups are busy and active and mostly our youth numbers and adult numbers are close to the pre pandemic levels.
Our Volunteers have worked hard to ensure their compliance with their mandatory Safeguarding and Safety training to ensure that Scouting in our County is delivered safely.
Looking forward, we have a contingent travelling to Korea for the World Scout Jamboree in 2023. Training camps and events are well underway to prepare for this adventure. We also have a strong team of adults supporting our County trip to Kenya where we are taking over 50 Somerset Explorer Scouts to rekindle our links with 3 primary schools in Nakaru supported by Melon Mission.
