Somerset County Scoutcrow 2020

Thanks to everyone for your fabulous entries in our June Scoutcrow Event.

Visit the county Facebook page  www.facebook.com/SomersetScouts/ to see a celebration, in photos, of the wonderful Scoutcrows all over Somerset. It is great that we can still participate together in so many different ways even though we are forced to ‘Scout apart’, in our own homes.

Many thanks to all those wonderful heroes across this county – our adult volunteers who are continuing to provide inspiring ‘distance’ and ‘virtual’ programme experiences, in increasingly innovative ways for the youth members of their sections.

 

We are delighted to share this lovely poem, which was written by Yvonne Back, the Chair of Bishops Lydeard Group in Blackdown.

 

BP declared… years ago

That we could make a Movement grow

If youngsters had the chance to show

The many things that they all know.

 

After many years of watching them

I realise they’ll produce a gem

If given time & space & means

Fantastic things they will achieve.

 

So Scoutcrow or scarecrow

Will certainly grow

From many youngsters

In the know……

 

So watch this County produce a field

Of many Scoutcrows that will yield…

The talent that lies amongst our young

Really should have their praises sung!

 

 

 

Best wishes to you all and… stay safe, Somerset!

 

Elizabeth Henderson

County Commissioner

 

 

 

Just some of the ones we were sent…
