Do we say “thank you” enough?
Every year in April The Scout Association published it’s St George’s Day Awards list. I am delighted that this year the excellent service of the following Scouters has been recognised:

Denise Robbins Assistant Group Scout Leader, 7th Warwick (Woodloes), Group Scout Leader, 1st Hampton Magna, District Appointments Advisory Committee Member, District Training Adviser, Warwick, County Local Training Manager.
We have many hundreds of adults around the County and do we recognise what they all do? It could be something as simple as saying “thank you” on a regular basis. But we can also recognise people in other ways – we have long service awards when people have completed 5+ years service, we can recommend people for Good Service Awards – details can be found here https://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search?cat=230
It does not just have to be a Commissioner who apply for Awards – you can as well!
Let’s make April say Thank You month.
Appreciation can make a day – even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary. Margaret Cousins
Thanks for all that you do for Scouting in Warwickshire
