Date: 16th Dec 2016 Author: Gerald Law
The Royal Navy and the Scouts have renewed their long-standing relationship with the signing of an agreement.

The Second Sea Lord, Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock, and Tim Kidd the UK Chief Commissioner for The Scout Association signed the Memorandum of Agreement which renews the Royal Navy Sea Scout Partnership for another three years.

2019 marks the Centenary of the Partnership and planning is already underway to mark this prestigious milestone.

The Royal Navy’s relationship with The Scout Association dates back to 1919 and continues to be a relationship built on mutual trust, comradeship, pride and partnership.

Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock said: “Our longstanding partnership is testament to close relationship we have with The Scout Association, and so it gives me great pleasure to sign this agreement, cementing the relationship further.

“I am excited by the prospect of even greater interaction with The Scout Association as we look forward to the RN sponsorship of the ‘Time on the Water’ Stage Badge in 2017.”

Mr Kidd, the UK Chief Commissioner for The Scout Association said: “I am extremely pleased and proud to be able to renew this partnership for another three years, coupled with planning to mark the centenary of this partnership already underway, we are able to look forward to lots of excitement and continued close collaboration with the Royal Navy.’’

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
