TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!

This section of the site is edited by our Youth Commissioner - let them know what you think!  They're a member of Scouts and like to have fun as much as you! Many great ideas have come from our Youth members and we encourage YOU to let us know how we can make the Scouting experience better for yourself and everybody in your group!

Give us your feedback by sending us an email at Leigh.Dyment@gmail.com
