Newsletter March 2024

I can’t believe it’s March already.

I took 3 of my Brownies to the Thinking Day Steam train event. Oh my goodness weren’t we lucky with the weather?  It was warm enough to take off coats and we were so impressive stood on the hills leading up to the castle to re-make our promise.  Thanks to Emma and the team for organising it and to the Swanage railway for their help.

I spent a great weekend at the end of February at Dudsbury with the INTOPS participants.  Most Divisions sent someone for selection and I think the highlight for me was the midday cooking challenge.  I loved the deconstructed oreo cheesecake – although the soup I had was pretty good too.  Thanks to those who made this possible and to the young members who came along and gave their best. 

I have been busy filling up my diary with events and trainings for the rest of the year.  

Look out for the Dorchester monopolywatersports and coasteering.

The GOLD event for 2023 winners is ready to go and the adult equivalent will be out soon.  

There is a commissioner’s and “everyone” REN training coming up along with mentor training.

Thank you to all who have paid their subscriptions quickly.  If you haven’t done so please will you nip off and sort it now.  Once again please let your Commissioner (or me) know if you are having issues.

To all those of you who celebrate Easter have a great holiday and I hope everyone’s Easter eggs are full of surprises.

Best Wishes,


County Commissioner
