Members of NSGF-UK hold a Twinning meeting with NSGF Spain at Gilwell Park, London on Saturday 7th September 2019.
At Gilwell Park was the annual Gilwell reunion, an annual event established to mark the first Wood Badge course in 1919 which has its centenary anniversary. There were thirty members from Spain, headed by their National President, Antonio Jesus Lillo Fernandez and we were joined by two Central Branch members from Brazil.
Photos were taken by the B-P Statue on the lawn behind the White House (The White House a former Scout Headquarters serves today as a hotel). Discussions took place indoors about how the two organisations worked within their respective countries and how Spain has managed to attract new and younger members.
Questions on the next World Conference were asked and answered by Helena Thomas Curras, Chair of the organising committee. NSGF UK will do its best to encourage members to attend the next World Conference in Madrid 2020.
