DCs blog – Summer 2013

10 September 2013

Hello! And welcome to the first edition of our new district magazine!

I’d better start by introducing myself, I’m Lee Baldwin and I’m one of the many adult volunteers who help to make scouting in our district as exciting as possible for our hundreds young people. When I’m not busy being a Cub and Explorer Leader in Oadby, I’m also the District Commissioner, it sounds rather grand but its basically my role to help support the 10 groups and 4 Explorer Units across Oadby, Wigston, Knighton and Stoneygate that make up Leicester South East District.

You’ll notice we’ve called this “The Magazine” and yes, we think its a rubbish name too so we’re running a competition on page 9, inviting you to suggest a better one!

This first issue is packed with stories and pictures from YOUR adventures over the summer and its all been put together by our Media Team. I’d like to thank them and would like to ask you all to help share the adventure in South East by sending us your own pictures and tales of scouting fun. It’ll probably even count towards a badge or two!

Anyway, that’s quite enough from me, I’ll let you read the more interesting stuff!

If you’ve any feedback, would like to be involved or just have a question about something scouty, you can email me at
