It is with great sadness that we inform you that Gavin Bailey (Mowgli, Section Assistant with our Cub Pack) passed away after a short illness on Thursday morning. Some of you may have met him through Cubs, Family Camps or many other of our scouting events.
He was a true Scout and a lovely person who would always do anything to help anyone, and will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts and love are with his family (Ami is part of our Exec and his children Lauren and Aarron are both Young Leaders) at this difficult time.
One of our scouting family "gone home" too soon......
For those not familiar with the scouting use of "gone home" - this is a trail symbol of a circle witha single stone / twig etc in the middle that was used to indicate the end of a trail and that scouts had gone home. It is also used as an expression and symbol when a member of the scouting family passes way. The symbol is on the gravestone of Baden Powell and on the scouting memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum.
