Come to our strategy event, AGM and social! Saturday September 28th

On Saturday September 28th we will be holding a Strategy event, AGM and a social – and everyone involved with the 1st is invited to attend one, two or all three of these events, as they wish!

The Strategy event will run from 1pm to 5pm and is intended to be a chance for everyone to get together to explore group-wide challenges and aspirations. We’ll be looking at our digital, volunteering, leader training and programme ambitions, but we’re also keen to hear about any ideas and ambitions you want to discuss too. Please feel free to email Mike Wilson, GSL, with ideas:

We’ll then run a short AGM between 5.30pm and 6pm. As trustees, the Exec is required legally to share information about our finances and governance with all Leaders, Members, Parents and others who make up the Group Scout Council. We’ll be sending out a Trustee Report and a Finance Report separately. We will also be electing and re-electing Committee Members.

We are still looking for a new chair to replace Dave Kesby, who will be stepping down at the AGM. If you are interested in finding out more about this incredibly rewarding role, please email or As Dave says, “It’s not the most important role in Scouting, but it is one that can make a real difference. What difference do you want to make?” A complete organisational chart of 1st Winchester Scout Group is available here

Finally, we’ll have the social, from 6pm to 8pm – a chance to relax and have a chat.

Please use this Doodle Poll to book a place on one or more of these events:

We hope to see you on the 28th!
