Today we join with millions of Scouts across the world, as we remember the founder of Scouting, Baden-Powell.

Baden-Powell started Scouts for children, his mission was to provide a programme that developed the character of young people and made them useful citizens, able to look after themselves and develop skills which would serve them well throughout their lives.

We now live in a very different world, with many distractions for children, a main one being social media, along with the “need” to follow the trends and fashions of their friends.

Scouting offers a distraction from some of these modern trends, so let us celebrate this Founders Day/Thinking Day by offering the children in our Groups and Associations the opportunity to take part in traditional Scouting activities, as written by Baden-Powell.

Together we can make a difference, together we are strongest.

Happy Founders Day
