The release of the 2016 census sees the Mersey Weaver District celebrating a year of growth! With 1430 members in total in the District – 324 of whom are volunteers.
We’re also product to announce that 27% of our membership in the District is female.
The UK Movement also celebrates it 11th consecutive year of growth with 573,000 members in total – 115,000 of whom are volunteers, 25% of the UK membership is female and 21 young people are now joining the Movement every single day (on average).
As a volunteer-led organisation, we would not be able to provide our high-quality Programme to so many young people each week without dedicated adults. Owen Campbell, District Commissioner, stated ” I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the adult leaders and supporters for their commitment and enthusiasm in providing a fun and rewarding experience to our youth membership”.
After another year of impressive growth, we know that even more young people still want to join the adventure and are actively seeking ways to give them that opportunity.
