Great Western Leaders are Refreshed!

30th September 2010

More than 50 leaders from across Great Western District enjoyed a weekend of fun, learning and refreshing their skills at Auchengillan recently.

The weekend provided an opportunity for leaders to improve their basic Scouting skills, share ideas with each other and meet friends old and new.

The sun shone on Auchengillan which made it even nicer!

Commenting on the weekend, District Commissioner Anne Law said 'I'm sure I am speaking for everyone when I say it was lots of fun, we all learnt something new and formed excellent links and friendships between other leaders in the District which will stand us in good stead for the future, so I'm delighted that we met our aims. On behalf of the District, I'd like to say a huge thanks to Gerry Durkin of the 204th for arranging and coordinating the bases and to Caroline and Brian Lowe (80th), Sandy Bennet & Gordon Hobden (20th), Alastair Jardine (178th), John Wordie (86th/191st), Jim Peebles (72nd), Fiona Hunter (183rd), Scott Ballantyne (9th), Robin and Moira Russell (District Team) and Scott McDonald (Auchengillan) for all that they did to help the weekend go smoothly.' Anne continued, 'a huge thanks also to Christine Quigg and Jinty for making sure that we were all well fed.'

The District hopes to repeat the event in 2 years' time.
