Title: Winchester Scout
Post by: Margaret Boggs on July 27, 2012, 11:31:17 AM
Can anyone help this chap

Hello,
I recently met your colleagues at the Alton agricultural show a few weeks ago, who were really nice and showed me a few knots and gave me a good history lesson. During our talk I inquired as to weather the guild would be able to help my local scout group, he advised me to get in contact with the guild via email. I am an assistant scout leader for Winchester third the Worthys, I would love to have my scouts learn knot tying from the experts, and I am sure some of the leaders would find it useful or fascinating too. If you would be able to help us that would be great, our normal scout meetings are Wednesday evenings, we would like to be able to sort something for the 18th of November. However, we are somewhat flexible and could sort out anther date. If you would be able to help us it would be very  much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Paul Collins

Hi Paul,
It was me you spoke to at the Alton Show, at the time I said our team from the Solent Branch is some what depleted,  that is not to put you off, just to say I know you are out there, I have to do some networking to get some folk together.
