Hi I’m Michael but everyone calls me Shrew!
I’ve been in Scouts since I was a Beaver and have worked my way up to the giddy heights of Group Scout Leader.
I work as a software developer so all the technical jobs on the sub camp tend to find their way to me.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all at Norjam 2018.
Hi, I’m Nell.
I started my Guiding journey in Rainbows and have never left, I now run a Ranger unit. I honestly can’t imagine life without it. “I’ve spent so long in uniform my blood is Navy blue”!
My work is for a local insurance company, but I also help to run children’s parties at a soft play area at the weekends. In my free time I enjoy many hobbies from running to reading to crochet!
I’ve attended 2 Norjams, brought contingents to 2, and this will be my first on a sub camp team. I’m excited to see what the week will hold.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Norjam 2018 and hope I can help to make it fantastic for everyone.
