I was lucky to involved in Scouting from an early age; moving through to the Venture Unit, which of course is now the Explorers. At the time I was living in Wales and our Venture Leader was very much focused on the outdoors and we spent a lot of our time walking and climbing in the Snowdonia mountains.
My son joined a Scout Group as a Cub, and when we moved to Sidmouth 16 years ago, he joined the 1st Sid Vale Scout Group. The rest as they say his history. I was encouraged to be involved with the committee and I have been Chairman since around 2005. In simple terms I chair the Group Committee which aims to make sure that the Scout Group has the facilities and resources needed to deliver good Scouting in the Group.
I enjoy being involved with 1st Sid Vale Scout group; there’s always lots going on. It’s great place to meet people and to see young people try new adventures.
