“1st Tenerife” cub pack and scouts group – Tenerife has scouts at last!

Update 11 June: Steve and Leisel say that they have now had written permission to open the scout group, and have arranged an open evening for all children and parents that are interested on Tuesday 24 June from 5.30 to 7.30pm at Silencio Church Hall, Coral Mar Square. They will be starting pack nights from 1st July. The email address for further information is 1st.tenerifescoutgroup@gmail.com.

Original post 29 May: I’m sure that many will be delighted that there is now a cub pack and scouts group in Tenerife. The new “1st Tenerife” has been certified by Alfonso Sanchez, District Commissioner for the France & Iberia District of British Scouting Overseas, belonging to the Scouting Association UK, and organizers Steve Hardy and Leisel Thomas are currently looking around for possible venues. There will soon also be a Facebook page for the group for regular updates, information and interaction.

Steve and Leisel are accredited, CRBed and trained to the UK standards for Scouting Leadership, obtaining the elite Wood Badge Award. The group that is being started in Tenerife is not on its own but has behind it a large organization backed by the BSO which comprises some 2,500 members around the world. The BSO, and so the new Tenerife group, runs on the British Scouting system and its methodology, statutes, policies and rules.

Steve and Leisel say that “there is a lot of work to be done as this will be a brand new group for the youths of Tenerife, which will require some generous people to help us get set up”. Good luck to them, I hope it’s a great success for all concerned.
