Thinking & Feeling

If you want something done....

I am starting to get volunteeralitis...

I don't tend to have time to volunteer and/or commit to being physically available at any specific time particularly during the work day/week - what with working basically full time, doulaing, running, yoga, kata-box, friends and and and.

So I avoid being class rep, or doing regular tuck shop duty etc etc, but I find I help out where ever I can. So I do tuck shop duty at fun events and sport days - when I'll be there anyway.

I help out at cubs if I am there on the day, and they need supervisors and demonstrators etc to help, but have also avoided getting roped in to the formal organisational structure there. It's not that I don't WANT to help, but I hate hate hate letting people down, and I get over committed pretty easily, so I just help as and when I can.

The Scout Group's web site has been static and very simple for years now though and it's needed a refresh. No one has volunteered to help so far.... so last night I decided heck I will do it!

The boys have really enjoyed cubs immensely, even Griffin who isn't even a member, but is very often there and gets included in all the fun activities they do, and we haven't paid a cent for him.

So last night I started on a new page for them....

The old site is HERE

and I am working on THIS

Noting that I have only spent an hour or 3 on it so far, and I have limited skills too... What do you think? Is it an improvement?

I am hoping this one will be nice and active and will have regular updates and new letters etc, so people will have a reason to come loo at it, and find whatever info they need....

I have just sent it to the Scouter for review - I hope she likes it.


  1. I can't see the old site, but I like the new site. Well done!

  2. Thanks J, oh and the link is fixed now... :)
