JANUARY 2019
As part of the County strategy to improve member communications, we will be sending Member Updates to keep you informed of upcoming events and important information from our team. The Buzz will remain our newsletter and be sent seasonally to promote all of the amazing events and opportunities our young people and volunteers have taken part in over the previous few months.

If you have any further suggestions on how we can communicate more effectively with our members, please get in touch by contacting Jacob Bond (DCC Programme) by emailing, dcc.programme@gmwscouts.org.uk.

This year's event has been shaped on feedback we received from volunteers across the County in a survey sent at the end of last year. Volunteers can attend as few or many sessions as they want, and if you are here during lunchtime we will be providing you with a hot lunch!
