So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye!

After three years of amazing adventures Saturday was my last day as County Youth Commissioner for Northumberland. I’ve had a brilliant time meeting and working with hundreds of fantastic young people alongside incredible volunteers who provide excellent Scouting week in week out. Together we’ve made brilliant progress on our Youth Shaped journey over that time with more young people being given the opportunity to shape their own Scouting adventures.

My plea to you all is to keep that amazing work going. Keep running those youth forums, keep encouraging your young people to take on peer leadership roles, keep empowering your young leaders to step up and take the lead. Scouting is at its best when it’s in partnership with young people and adults.

As no recruitment has taken place the County Youth Commissioner role is now vacant. For any queries please contact your District Youth Commissioner as applicable or Michael Wood-Williams (County Commissioner) on michael.woodwilliams@northumberlandscouts.org.uk.

All the best, Stu.
