The County activities team have been working hard over the past few months to put together a whole new schedule of events for all of the sections in the County. To help you to continue the good work that you are doing in enabling the transfer of our younger members from their current section to their next one we have scheduled some "Link" events which are aimed at the transition ages within the relevant sections.
Bookings for these events will be via our Cambridgeshire website early in the New Year, so watch out for details in "ShoutOut". The cost, as always will be kept as low as possible.
The County activities team are looking for more adults to help with one or more of the events listed and if you feel that you can help in anyway then please contact Elaine Chamberlain. As you know the more adults that we have to help makes it far easier on those which have already committed to provide these additional activities and events for your young people.
The new September Edition of POR which contains a number of updates both to do with the introduction of Compass and other legislation changes that encompass Scouting. Please make sure that you update yourselves with the new rules as it is a requirement of us all to be compliant with them during all of our scouting activities.
As no doubt you will be aware there has been a number of issues regarding the transfer of data from the old MMS database to the new Compass database but I am pleased to say that HQ are working relentlessly to bring this out to us in a format and functionality that will be of a real benefit to us all. The first tranche of users (the roll out is role based) are now actively using the database and HQ are planning to release then next lot of user invitations in the very near future so please wait to login/register until you receive an invite from HQ. In the meantime please feel free to familiarise yourself with the training system, for more information on that and who your local champion is please either contact or Jackie Daniels (County Compass Champion) your DC. Several processes will change with the new system and more of this will come when you are invited to register.
