Buzz #1 – At last!

Date: 24th Jun 2019 Author: Phil Hunt

Welcome! At last! 

It took a little longer than anticipated, but now that you’re reading this means we have a great website which, in time will become the ‘go-to’ place for pretty much all the District information you’re looking for.

The ‘public’ pages host information and forms for new joiners and volunteers as well as providing the showcase for Scouting in Richmond upon Thames.

The Members area includes all kinds of District things that Leaders and Adult Volunteers need and want to know – everything from localised Programme ideas, the diary of events, contact details, forms, adult training, permits and much, much more… and more to come! You’ll need a password to access these pages. Ideas, feedback and articles  are welcome.

As for me, I’ll be regularly contributing to What’s Buzzing. I’ll be sharing what’s being talked about along with my own thoughts and observations. It’ll be the ‘DC’s Blog’ – so check in regularly and let me know what you’re thinking too.

This website is a much needed step-change in the way we’ll all be able to engage with each other around the District and is of course part of Our Plan to help our Leaders and Volunteers to be even more Amazing! 

If you are a Leader or a Volunteer – thank you for all you’re doing! If you’re not, come and join our Amazing team!

I hope to see you soon.


I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
