I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas whether you were celebrating in the snow, the rain, the sun, in the mountains, in the forest, in the desert or by the sea.
2019 will be another exciting year for BGO.
For our volunteers we have lots of training sessions planned -
Don’t forget our new BGO thanks and recognition awards -
I’m delighted to let you know that a BGO leader, Rosemary, is leading the adult service team for the UK contingent for EuroJam 2020. Congratulations Rosemary!!
For our young members, we have a group attending the World Scout Jamboree in July -
We also have our Compass 19 event at Whitemoor lakes so if there are girls in your units who are interested but who haven’t signed up yet please encourage them to do so They too will make new friends and have lots of fun and adventure.
For our Rangers there will be the opportunity to follow Peer Educator training so that we can offer this wonderful opportunity of our older young members taking the lead in Brownie and Guide meetings through Peer Ed sessions. The new Young Person award for outstanding service to guiding within BGO is also not to be forgotten -
Watch for news coming out soon of our 2020 BGO led international camp for guides in Cyprus. The nine UK regions will each be sending a patrol of Guides to join us at this exciting event.
AND the fun and excitement won’t stop here as there will be lots going on in unit meetings -
I look forward to seeing you in 2019 and hope that it will be a happy, healthy and successful year for you and the units you guide with.
