Motion text

That this House thanks the work of volunteers within the Scout Association and in particular those in the Scout District of Ross, Skye and Lochalsh; acknowledges Scouting provides a fun and safe activity, open to all our young people regardless of background and that this has been especially important to Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers over the last 18 months, helping them keep in touch with friends, even if just virtually, while still taking part in scouting activities and learning vital skills for life; notes that all this would not be possible without the dedicated work of adult volunteers; and recognises Hilary Cameron, District Commissioner, and Samantha Blyth, Deputy District Commissioner, have been a huge support to leaders across the district and that their leadership has meant groups across the area are starting to meet face to face again while putting in place COVID measures, ensuring that Scouts are firmly part of this Highland Community.
