    Iona Brownlie

    Member of the Regional Youth Advisory Group, Iona Brownlie relfects on their first full meeting held recently.

    At the beginning of the month, Clyde Region's Youth Advisory Group (RYAG) met at Auchengillan Outdoor centre for their first official meeting. Within the meeting the group elected its Chair, James Gallagher from the 28th Glasgow, Vice-Chair ZoŽ Jordan and Secretary Emma McLea from 1st Lenzie. James is now the first ever Regional Youth Commissioner for Clyde Region. Congratulations to James, ZoŽ, and Emma on their election.

    At its meeting, the Group discussed how to encourage the young people of the Region to take part in more events. The Group was split up and together they came up with activities to get the youth members of Clyde Region more involved and this included discussion on whether a weekend or a day event would be more successful. After the hard work the Group were then treated to a spot of rifle shooting provided by Mark from the Auchengillan team.

    The RYAG are now working towards an activity day to encourage the youth members of Clyde to become more involved in Scouting. The RYAG hopes to encourage Clyde to become more #youthshaped and under the watchful eye of Regional Commissioner Marion Rankin and Assistant Regional Commissioner (Youth Involvement), Euan Waddell it is bringing the Scouts from across the Region together to ensure that they as young people are at the front of all that is Clyde Region.

  • Meet Deputy Regional Commissioner, Simon

    Author: Gary Bainbridge | Date: 7th November 2017

    Name: Simon Robb

    Role: Deputy Regional Commissioner (14-25 Programme)

    How long have you been involved in Scouting? Since I was a cub, 30+ years ago.

    Favourite Scouting memory: hard to choose just one, but probably leading my Jamboree Unit, complete with pipers, into the opening ceremony of the World Scout Jamboree in Japan.

    #iScout because I want to ensure that more of the 14-25 age group has access to quality Scouting.

    When not Scouting, I'm a fan of Deacon Blue and was lucky to catch them at their end of tour gig at the famous Glasgow Barrowlands last year.

  • Meet Deputy Regional Commissioner, Carslaw

    Author: Gary Bainbridge | Date: 7th November 2017

    Name: Carslaw Purdie (aka Blakey)

    Role: Deputy Regional Commissioner

    How long have you been involved in Scouting? Joined at 8 (no Beavers back then), so in total 53 years.

    Favourite Scouting memory: heading to San Diego with 37 Scouts and 5 leaders.

    #iScout because Scouting DOES make a difference and I wish to be part of those supporting Groups and Districts in Clyde Region to make the difference.

    When not Scouting, I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren and I like to travel the world with my job. Fab food is rib eye steak when in USA and the best holiday destination is Tenerife. I also watch Sky Sports a lot.
