The coming Christmas celebrations brings our extended families together and the summer holiday period brings a break from the more regular Scouting activities.


I urge you to use this festive time to rest and recharge the batteries, to do things with friends, family and around the house or to undertake a new activity with less time pressure whilst reflecting  on this year’s programme successes and visualizing how you can assist your Scouting formation to grow in 2012.


Best wishes from myself and the Branch Teams for this Christmas and New Year season.
