Tea at Buckingham Palace
Many thanks to the Network and Young Leaders who were able to respond at very short notice to represent scouting at a recent Garden Party at Buckingahm Palace. The following note was received by Chris Dean (DCC Programme) from Headquarters;
I would whole heartedly like to send my thanks to you and the Team of Network that turned out from GLSW for the Garden Party.
They were a credit to Scouting.
Unfortunately, due to the high security, we weren’t supposed to take photo’s but the kind Policeman on the gate allowed us a very quick photo opportunity. Unfortunately, one member of the Team was missing due to having to collect his bike from the side entrance in which we entered. Never the less I thought you would like a copy of the photo to send to those that attended.
We were fortunate with the weather, and I can see from some of the emails that I have received that a good day was had by all. Please pass on my thanks to all those that took part. GLSW certainly flew the flag!
Chris, once again a very big thank you to you. I’m sure like me, there was a time when sending emails very late into the evening you felt that it wasn’t going to come together. But we succeeded!
On now to the next venture..........
Thanks again to everyone
