We all know what a difference Scouting makes to the lives of young people and how it adds to their development and character building, but something that we don't always shout about is the impact that it has on adults lives, how it teaches or enhances new skills, gives a sense of fulfilment and community giveback, how much enjoyment it gives to see a young person develop and overcome their personal limits. With the imminent recruitment of our County Development Officer the time to grow the County has never been better!

Cambridge University Scout and Guide Club's annual incident hike, the Marathon Challenge, is taking place on Saturday 15th November around the village of Potton. It is open to anyone over the age of 14 who is involved with Guides or Scouts (including leaders). Teams of 4 or 5 have all day to reach as many of the 26 given grid references as possible; points are given for the number of checkpoints reached and challenges completed along the way. At the end of the day, the winning team from each category is awarded a trophy.
The existing membership system will be live again from 9am Thursday 31 July for disclosure checks and amends. This is due to the decision to hold the Compass launch to ensure vital improvements can be made.

We, as a County along with the rest of the UK, will be taking delivery of the new Compass membership database from the beginning of August on a 3 phase role based basis. This will mean a number of things:
We will not have access to processes on the MMS system from the middle of July as Gilwell will be taking it offline to transfer the data across to the new database, therefore if you have anybody going to camp, taking on a new role or change of role then please make sure that you have all the paperwork together by the end of June for your appointments secretary to process it by the middle of July.
