As a new Scout group we’ve been really focused on getting ourselves up and running. I am very happy to say we have definitely achieved that! We are now well into our second year, with established Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections.
Now, to keep on doing what we do, we need to reach out into our local community. We need to make new friends, engage new members, and spark new volunteers.
That means telling our story. A picture is worth a thousand words, so sharing great photographs and video is a really important way for us to do this.
Everybody is rightly cautious about how to do that so the group executive committee have put their heads together to create a brand new Social Media Policy. It encourages everybody to take pictures and sets out simple guidelines for how to do that appropriately and how 1st Trumpington Scouts can use them in our communications.
For parents the policy also explains how you can tell us your preferences for how we use photographs and video featuring your child.
Whether you are a parent, leader or young member, please take great pictures on your next activities! You can give them to me or one of our contributors to post about them here, or become a contributor yourself (just ask me). GSL will review your post and pow! You’re telling our story.
