Mike has been given the chance to run a pub in London and has already made the move. Do drop in to The Gazebo at Kingston-upon-Thames if you are passing! We wish Mike all the best and no doubt we will see him around in the scouting world.

We also send out an email newsletter “Left Handshake” on the 1st of each month with a short summary of each article and links to the website.

Everyone likes to see information about forthcoming events and pictures/reports of recent events. It is also okay to send us links to items on your own group websites that might be of wider interest around the District.
