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!
Just some of the ones we were sent…
