The group held its first in-person Annual General Meeting last night for three years,
We welcomed a number of members to the Group Executive Committee (most of whom are also Trustees of the group charity). Tony Mann as Group Chair, Catherine Martin as Group Secretary and officially elected JoAnn Etherington as Group Treasurer.
Thank you to all the parents that joined us for this important part of being a charity.
At the end of the AGM we presented a number of Chief Scouts Awards, including our first Acorn Awards to some of our Squirrels.
We also caught-up on some awards that were delayed from last year.
While we were having our AGM in the marquee, the youth members of the group were hearing about and seeing a birds-of-prey presentation.
