I realise that most sections are finishing soon for the summer break but I thought it would be useful to let Young Leaders know the date for the training modules for the session starting in September. Mod A (Compulsory Module) Wednesday 12th September 32nd Ipswich HQs Stoke Park Drive 7 - 9pm All the other Modules will take place at Bramford Scout and Guide HQs 7 - 9pm Please ask your YLs to book in with me if they intend coming to any of the above. Numbers for the First Response Course are limited -in the first instance precedence will be given to those nearing completion of their Award. I attach an In Touch form for the Mod A course and also for the other courses. For those returning to training in September please ask them to bring with them a completed form so my records are up to date. Do please get in touch if you or your Young Leaders have any queries. Yours in Scouting Di Smith DESA/DESL(YL)

There's still time to book! Scouts will be working with the Suffolk Fire & Rescue, Paramedics from the Ambulance service, the Coast Guard and the Police to develop your first response emergency aid skills. Play out what-if scenarios, test your first aid skills and learn how to save lives!!! This camp will raise money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, camp fees will go towards EAAA and in return we get access to professionals who will teach our scouts valuable lifesaving skills. Your Scouts will be able to pick up Emergency Aid Badges as well as community work for either the World Challenge Award badge or Fundraising badge, if you decide to support the EAAA in your own fundraising event afterwards.
