Are you registered for Compass?

Compass is the national Adult membership database and you can register for access to view your own records. Information on your Compass record includes contact information, training records, roles you hold, award records, activity and nights away permit details, choosing your communication preferences and details of your DBS. Take a look!

There is also some support on how to use Compass, including videos. 

Cricket Camp Maintenance Morning

These working days are an excellent opportunity for young people to get involved with and work towards various awards and badges. There are plenty of jobs to do out at the site and you don't have to be an expert in anything to get stuck in! It would be really nice to see the Groups helping out where they can, after all it's our District Campsite and we all need to look after it. 

The next morning session will be...

Date: 3 August 2019 
Time: 0900-1200 

Refreshments provided.
