Here’s to 2016!
Just a quick note before all the mayhem and madness descends and we turn into werepeople (sic) to say Happy New Year to each of you.
After nearly 11 years, I still take immeasurable pride in being your DC and as we move into another Scouting year, a big THANK YOU from me for all the time, talent, energy and enthusiasm each of you gives on a regular basis. We really are the envy of other uniformed organisations in the Lisburn area and this is down to each of you.
Congratulations go to Barbara Green, GSL of 2nd Hillsborough Scout Group and Prinicpal of Beechlawn School on being awarded the MBE in the New Years Honours listing and, if I could, my old DARD colleague Colin Rea of Mid Ulster District Scouts on his award of the British Empire Medal.
