It may seem strange to use a website to express thanks to the many people who voluntarily give of their time each week to support the 113th. However for many visitors to this site, who may or may not be involved in Scouting, I feel it is important that we each reflect on the time given up and down the country to support the development of young people through organisations like Scouting.

It is so easy to knock young people today or to dismiss voluntary uniformed organisations as archaic, but without them, and without the leaders and the background support, there would be more young people standing on street corners complaining about nothing to do. The children and young people of Burnside cannot have that complaint. The 113th will welcome any potential new member.
