Another amazing AGM!! - 17th May 2012

Many thanks to everyone for your support and hard work. Our 104th AGM was very well attended – it’s turning more and more into a yearly celebration and getting better and better each time.


This was acclaimed on the night by Peter Head who was a guest of ours and used to be our ADC many years ago. He took me to one side at the end of the night and said how much he enjoyed the event. He literally said it was the best AGM he had ever attended; praise indeed from someone who must have been to hundreds of them, he even said it gave him the enthusiasm to get back involved!!



All the videos were outstanding, I think there's a bit of rivalry going on, eh? All of you put across your messages very well, Great Humour - Great Imagination, Raiders of the Lost Ark - Inspirational!! - Not sure how you are all going to top that next year, guys??

Also I have to say congratulations to Laurence, I know he hates these things, but clearly had gone on a public speaking course, plus he had a few Power-point lessons!!! (Thanks to Adam). Fred, thank you for presenting the whole Scout section, as requested we will get you a box for next year!!! Also a big “Thank you” to the Scouts for Teas & Coffees…But where were the biscuits?

Thank you to Tony Knott (Training Manager) who represented the Nene Valley District and he clearly picked up on the key messages.

To all the Executive Committee Members who pulled the event together, another great job, thank you.

Congratulations to Chris Ward on receiving his 5 year Service Award and to Lisa Swainston for her Wood badge Leader Training Award.

Well done to all the award winners, especially Alison - for her well-deserved Thanks Badge and to Richard Ablett, another recipient of a Thanks Badge for his continued support for Scouting.

Well done to all the Young People who won awards.
