Hi guys, some of you were pretty interested in finding out how I got off in the Scouts initiation I had tonight.
Well I met Sue the area co-ordinator at the hall, I was pretty nervous although I dont know why because I have previously been a youth worker, but I think it was because I didnt know what to expect. But hand on heart, what a really generous and nice bunch of people working there, the kids dont know how lucky they are to have them.
Theres only 5 explorer scouts in this group, and they are basically looking for an Explorer Scout Leader to take them, which is why I was asked to go there tonight. Met all the 5 boys (excellent lads) we had a good laugh and just a general meet and greet tonight, we all planned what we are gonna do up untill the summer months which included Canoeing, Rock climbing, camping, fishing, archery, rifle range, go-karting, DofE stuff, hiking, and some service work.
So all in all, this meeting seemed to be their first after xmas and they are planning their 6 months, so good timing for me. Im thrilled to be on board because it looks a really good laugh.
Oh, and because there are stretched for staff, they only run every fortnightly, but Sue has said in a month or 2 I can run my own nights. Brillianttt!!
