Hi Everyone

Here’s a quick update/bulletin from the County Communication Team (Victoria, Mandy, Ali, Sam, Paul, Alan, Graham and MaC).

We don’t currently run a regular newsletter, but we need to give you a few bits of information.

First of all there are a couple of general news items we’d like to update you with:

Can you Help 6th Newport

If you go shopping in Asda and get one of their little charity tokens, please put it in the 6th Newport box. The collection runs from now until 31st March 2019. I don’t think I need to explain why……

Sandown & Shanklin Lions Swimathalon

Teams of 6 swimmers will be raising money for the Lions on Saturday 4th May 2019. Can you raise a team to join in? If so here’s a link to the entry form. (thanks Claire).

Help at Beaver & Cub Fun Hike

Saturday 9th February both Districts are holding a combined Beaver and Cub Fun Hike at 1st Northwood HQ. Graham is looking for help running bases, etc. If you’re a leader or an SAS member and can help, please contact Graham Walmsley or Linda Caws.

Youth Commissioner

Most of you will know that our Youth Commissioner, Victoria Lawton is on the move. She’ll be leaving the Island in a couple of weeks to take up a new full time (PAID!) Scouting role in Dorset. She’s also been appointed to the National Youth Commissioners Team. On behalf of the Media Team I’d like to say a big “THANK YOU” for all the hard work and innovation you’ve given to the team and wish you every success in your new Scouting roles.

Website Editorial Team

Would you like to update the County website pages for your group or a section? If so please contact me on malcolm.cox@isleofwightscouts.org.uk

Wight Rovers Media Team Members

We’ll be recruiting members of all ages to join the Wight Rovers. The new Team Coordinator and I will be running more training courses, starting in the next couple of months. We’ll be taking the training further and including more badge work for the young people.

Wight Rovers PR Team Members

We’d like to see any adults who are involved in PR or recruitment on the training courses, to make sure you’re all up to speed with the new branding. We’d like to support you and make sure that the time you spend on PR and recruitment brings the maximum return. We’ll also be building up a stock of PR material for event use.

Wight Rovers Social Media Team Members

We’d also like to see any budding bloggers or social media experts who’d like to join the Wight Rovers and help promote IW Scouts on our social media. We need a number of people who can help us run Social Media from as many Scout events as possible. We’d like all team members to go through the Wight Rovers training course to create a baseline standard of media updating from which team members can develop their own style.
