Surrey Scouts’ Annual Review 2013-2014

1st Walton on the Hill Troop Quiz MP

 













On 13th March, Crispin Blunt MP for Reigate and Banstead, visited the 1st Walton on the Hill troop.  As part of the Writers Badge the Scouts all posed a question to form a complete interview of Crispin.  There were three main areas of questioning – what does an MP do; what does Crispin do; general questions about the local community.  They wrote up their interview as part of the badge requirements. 


Everyone agreed it was interesting and useful to understand what an MP does and how parliament works.









A new story sharing tool has launched to help you gather content from across your District. Please encourage members to visit stories.scouts.org.uk and submit details of their adventures. The content will then be shared with MDMs and teams at UKHQ. The site is mobile friendly so volunteers can upload stories on the go.


Stories are checked to see if they are appropriate and relevant.  Stories can be sent in by youth members, leaders or other adults.

A Family Celebration!








Woking’s District Commissioner, Liz Pocknell, had to take a backseat and just be mum as Oliver Pocknell made his Queens’ Scout presentation.


Oli talked about his journey through scouting and the people he met on the way .  His preparations included training hikes in very wet parts of the UK not helping with the blazing sun in the south of France!

For the international part of the badge requirements,  Oli went to Kandersteg as an assistant leader but had to step up to troop leader when the leader had to fly home for the birth of his daughter.


Liz “baked” a cake for Oli and the Network leaders bought a bottle of Champagne.
