I have a recent CRB disclosure which enabled me
to remain active with the Scout Association in Southampton.
Within the Scouts, I am currently the District Scout Leader for Southampton Central District,
coordinating the activities in the Scout (age 10-14) section across the District in which there are
4 Troops. This has involved running activities myself, as part of a team, and keeping all the Troops
informed about forthcoming events, some run by others in the District.
I am also a Training Adviser for the District, assisting Leaders in the District to
identify their training requirements. From the beginning of November, I shall be returning to
my old Southampton troop, the 7th Southampton (Bassett)
as their Scout Leader.
I have been involved in Canal Restoration with the Waterway Recovery Group, WRG, since August 1993,
and in that time, have helped to restore tow paths, hedgerows and lock chambers.
Recently, I have joined the Itchen Country Park Voluntary Rangers, and will be getting involved with
environmental projects around the Country Park when I have the time available.
