2008 TERM 1

18/Jan/08 - News from Gav in Kolding, Denmark.

For those who may not know, Gavin Norman (Gav) is a very highly regarded Scout Leader who took a leave of absence in July 2005 to pursue an adventure of a life time exploring Scouting around the world.
Gav contacted us on 18/Jan to say he is still working at Houens Odde, an international Scout centre in Denmark. His job involves running Scout camps and adventurous activities and he also works in the kitchen and performs maintenance tasks. After being there for 1 year and 3 months he is now the longest serving international volunteer at the centre. He will be preparing for the Danish Jamboree soon. Unfortunately for us he hasn't made any plans to return home yet.
