So as you’ve probably heard by now, Scout Leader David has gotten himself an engagement ring from OrlaJames.com and has proposed to his long-term girlfriend. He’s going head first into the real world, and hand-in-hand they’re going to start their lives together. Who knows! There may even be another little scout on the way…
As London scouts, one of the oaths you take is to always help other people at all time. Therefore, helping other people at all times is not just a voluntary activity but a mandatory one for London Scouts. One of the ways through which you can keep your promise to help other people is through performing volunteer work and community service.
There are three different promises in the scout’s promise; The first one says to “Do your Duty to God and Your Country”. What this simply means is that as London scouts, you would listen carefully to the teachings of your religious leaders and not just that, you would also abide by them. Religious teachers always preach about love, kindness and compassion and it is believed that when you abide by these teachings, you would be a better citizen.
I love scouting in London because of all the fun activities London scouts get to partake in. I learnt how to swim during my first camping with scout’s trip and I have also learnt to do a whole lot of other skills from camping trips. London scouts are expected to always be prepared for any situation, at any time and survival on a camping trip is of course one of the things you must prepared for as a true scout.
There is still a massive need to recruit adult volunteers into Scouting. Whether you are an adult volunteer or young person, this is your chance to get involved with recruiting new adult volunteers and in return be awarded the exclusive Recruiter Badge.
