The SE regional committee has had a busy time recently. In May we organised a training weekend that doubled up as a site visit to the venue for the Southern Regions summer camp.
The May event saw Woodies from all over the region taking part in 1st Aid or Forest School training. This was well received and enjoyed by the participants. On Sunday members from South West districts joined us and took part in a site walk around and discussions on common policies etc.
The SER has commissioned a T shirt for sale at the camp and the funds raised will be used to assist places at camp for young people.
The committee has been looking for a venue for regional gathering in November outside of Brighton but central in the region. A provisional date of 13th November has been agreed.
The committee has made an application to Awards for All to fund some further Forest School training. And we should hear if we have been successful shortly.
We have commissioned an artist to design three sail banners for use within the region- based on themes of co-operation, peace and international friendship. The initial designs should be available next week.
The committee has also started to look at a new constitution for the region.
