  • Coronavirus - Clyde Scouts update

    Author: Gary Bainbridge | Date: 23rd March 2020

    Following the recent advice from the Prime Minister, the Scouts have suspended all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events for the time being.

    Sadly, this means changes to our day to day operations for Clyde Scouts.

    Auchengillan Outdoor Centre is now closed to customers and our staff team are going to be focusing on improving the Centre for your return and supporting our communities where we can.

    We have decided to temporarily close The Glasgow Scout Shop to the public, with immediate effect for the time being. You can continue to place orders online at glasgowscoutshop.com and these will be dispatched without postage charges being applied.

    The Regional Office is currently closed in line with Government advice about social distancing. Members of staff are working from home and enquiries by email will be dealt with. You can email hello@clydescouts.org.uk or leave a message on 0141 248 6022 and your message will be returned.

    We'd like to thank everyone for their continued support.

  • Could you be the next District Commissioner for Clydesdale District?

    Author: Gary Bainbridge | Date: 17th January 2020

    After nearly 9 years in post, Charles Bow who is District Commissioner for Clydesdale District is stepping down on 2 February 2020 and we'd like to thank Charles for all that he has done to lead Scouting in Clydesdale during this time in post?

    Could you succeed Charles as District Commissioner and provide inspirational leadership and support to volunteers across the District?

    The successful candidate will be able to embrace the 6 key areas of leadership and management in Scouting:

    • Providing direction
    • Working with people
    • Achieving results
    • Enabling change
    • Using resources
    • Managing your personal time and skills

    As District Commissioner you will be responsible for leading the Scout District, ensuring that we provide good quality Scouting for young people. You will help take us forward as a growing organisation relevant to young people and adults alike. You will be capable of providing strategic direction and working with people of all ages.

    It's a key part of our support structure and a lot of hard work but the reward of seeing young people enjoy the adventure of Scouting is something that can't be beaten.

    Click here to download a copy of the role description/person specification and nomination form.

    Nominations and self nominations should be submitted to Gary in the regional office by Friday 28 February 2020.

    For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Marion Rankin or Gary Bainbridge.

  • Consultation on membership of the Regional Scout Council

    Author: Gary Bainbridge | Date: 15th January 2020

    At our Annual General Meeting in November 2019, proposals to expand membership of the Regional Scout Council were discussed and amendments were proposed from the floor.

    It was agreed that the Regional Executive Committee would discuss the matter further before bringing proposals back to the Regional Scout Council.

    In order to help inform that discussion, you are invited to answer a short questionnaire about your views on adult and young person membership of the Regional Scout Council here.
