Get ready for 2019!

Hi Scouts and Parents

Firstly let me introduce myself for those I have not yet managed to meet.  I have recently taken the Group Leader role from our District Leader, Paul Tuckwood.  Whilst I am new to Cleveland, my Scouting background is 10 years as Group Leader at Indooroopilly Scout Group and occasional leader in Joeys, Cubs and Venturers.  I was also District Adventurous Activities leader in Tyakunda (western Brisbane).  It is a privilege to join the dedicated and very experienced Cleveland team.

We are starting to plan for the 2019 Scouting year and need some assistance.  We do not currently have a Joey Scout Leader and the Scout section needs some help.  We consider any section without 4 leaders to be stressed.  We are also always looking for new leaders in Venturers and Cubs as well to ensure we always have sufficient leaders to run our activities safely.

Being a Scout leader is very rewarding – seeing the youth members enthusiastically learn new skills and have adventures with their mates canoeing, abseiling, camping, hiking, sailing, flying … is something you can be part of.

If you (or a partner / neighbour / friend / older brother of the Scout etc)  have ever thought about joining the leadership team, we will provide all the training you need (for free) and also ensure that you will always be supported in your Scouting career (that is my primary role).  If you are thinking you might want to know more, please give me a call on (0407 238460) or reply to this e-mail and I will get back to you.  I will also try to catch up with you all at section meetings either this year or early next year – so .

If I don’t catch up with you this term, have a very happy Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all next year.

Yours in Scouting
