Norfolk Scouts have taken part in some brilliant media coverage of our organisation
On Tuesday (11 April), following the announcement of our membership numbers in this year’s census there was great interest from the local media to share our success but also to help publicise that we need more adult volunteers, so that we can continue to grow.
The day started early for Jane, Deputy County Commissioner (Programme), who was interviewed by Nick Conrad for BBC Radio Norfolk’s Breakfast Show.
Later the radio car visited 1st Harling Scouts and spoke to Group Scout Leader, Penny.
Then finally Nick spoke to Andrew from Gilwell, Jon from Reepham, DC for South West Norfolk, Mike and Heather a Scout and Guide leader.
Penny and her group were involved again in the afternoon on BBC Radio Norfolk’s Matthew Gudgin Show, where Penny and members of her group were interviewed.
Then at tea time David, Deputy County Commissioner (Operations), appeared on ITV Anglia News with Scouts from 1st Hethersett.
On Wednesday (12 April), Matthew, County Commissioner was featured in coverage in the Eastern Daily Press
Thank you to everyone who took part, there has been a flurry of adult want to join enquiries which is very promising. Hopefully this provides some material to help keep the message that more adults equals more opportunities going across the county.
