Giving a guiding hand
HOW many of you grew up attending a weekly Brownie, Guide or Scout pack?
The regular evening meetings, the team work, the camps and campfires, the songs and the badges.
It was all part and parcel of growing up for many, many young people who will look back on those days with fondness – some great memories.
How positive to see such movements still going strong today – having survived because they have moved with the times, while maintaining a sense of tradition and history.

What a child does not realise when they attend these clubs is that, while having fun, they are learning valuable life skills that will help them grow and mature into well rounded adults.
Their ability to join a team, to display leaderships skills and to mix with others in different environments are all essential parts of life, that are missing from some young people.
Those with such attributes will be ahead of the game when it comes to knowledge, motivation and confidence.
In the competitive society in which we now live, it is simply vital that young people understand the need to be at the front of the opportunities queue – and equip themselves with what is needed to get there.
So let us wish such youth groups every success in the future – we need them!
