We have recently concluded a review of how we operate our in County centres in order to deliver the best possible service and value for our members. We continue to be focussed on how we can help make it easier for our membership to deliver the outdoor element of the Scouting programme and how we make the best use of our limited resources.

The outcome of this review is that we will be moving the booking, administration and financial management of Well End and Harmergreen Wood to Phasels Wood – where we can offer a 7 day a week service responding to telephone, e-mail and web form based bookings. This will be in place from early 2019.

Operational management of Well End will pass to the team at Phasels Wood, under the direction of Doug Stack. Operational management of Harmergreen Wood will pass to the team at Tolmers under the direction of Chris Rainbow. There should be no impact on any bookings that you have made or wish to make at the centres.

As a result of these changes, James and Ali Templeman will be leaving Hertfordshire Scouts at the end of this year.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank James and Ali for their significant contribution to Hertfordshire Scouts over the past four years and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
