An important moment for us all to share in and celebrate...
Merseyside Scouts is being awarded Freedom of the City of Liverpool.


We're delighted to share with you the exciting news that Merseyside Scouts is being awarded Freedom of the City of Liverpool.

Merseyside Scouts will be admitted to Liverpool City Council’s Freedom Roll of Associations and Institutions in recognition of our contribution. It is recognised that we all play a vital role in helping young people in our County to enjoy new adventures, explore the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence, make an impact in their communities, develop skills for life and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
 
The ceremony will take place at Liverpool Town Hall on the evening of Tuesday 5th December. Unfortunately, place are limited at the event therefore County are working with District Commissioners to ensure representation of young people and adults from across the County.

If technicalities allow, it is our intention to live broadcast the ceremony for anyone else who would like to witness this special event in our history. We therefore would like to invite you to join us at the Botanic Suite, Devonshire House Hotel on the evening of Tuesday 5th December where we will be receiving a LIVE relay of the ceremony. The ceremony commences at 5:30pm thereofre please ensure you take your seats prior to this.

This is a great opportunity to promote our impact externally and will be working on how we best achieve this, and support you to use the opportunity in your community too.

This is incredible recognition for all members of #TeamMerseyside, past and present; right across what is today 143 Scout Groups, 11 Districts, 8000+ young people, 2000+ regular adult volunteers and 1000+ occasional helpers... and both the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and Liverpool City Council are taking the opportunity to recognise your awesome contribution. 

Together with your support we have been able to ensure that our young people are...

  • More active
  • More employable
  • More curious
  • More emotionally intelligent
  • More likely to succeed in teams
  • More likely to be resilient
  • More likely to solve problems
  • More likely to recognise diversity
  • More likely to have belonging
  • More likely to be an active citizen

And that we are preparing better futures and helping in building skills for life. The following video gives an insight into what we have all achieved, and can continue to achieve in the future...

THANK YOU - District Camp 2017
12/06/2017 By Helen Hannigan

THANK YOU!

A massive thank you to all who attended, assisted or organised this year’s District Camp! The weekend ran smoothly and was enjoyed by over 500 members of Liverpool North and this is down to the efforts of you all!

To the team which helped to organise the whole event  a huge thanks to you all for the work you put in at camp, from my point of view it went well despite the weather. Just to say thank you seems such a little thing but it is sincerely meant.

Tawd Vale staff have also praised us all as a district and want us to pass on their thanks for the respect shown not only to them but the Twad Vale site in general, especially the toilets which are normally left in a state – not by LND who have kept these clean and serviceable throughout the weekend! So thank you to all of you for this and upholding the LND name!

Keep your eyes peeled for photographs and videos being uploaded by the various groups. We are currently sifting through to upload as many as possible onto the website and Facebook. If you have any photo’s or videos you can send in, please email to stejay87@gmail.com or if possible send a drop box link to allow these to be downloaded.

Thanks again

Helen, LND DC

Cash your cash before it's too late!
15/02/2017 By Stephen James

Do you have subs not yet banked? Do you hold petty cash in your HQ?

Please read the below to ensure you don't risk any losses to your finances. (This also applies to your personal finances too!)

The new 12-sided £1 coin is being rolled out next month, and the current round version will stop being legal tender (and so won’t be accepted in shops) on 15 October. After that, if you still have any old £1 coins, you won’t be able to spend them. Slightly different for the old £5 notes, however it may be wise to get these banked before 5th May 2017!

See the article from Martins Money Saving Expert website for more information here.
