Fond Farewell to Headmaster Tony Jarvis

We say farewell to Headmaster Tony Jarvis, who has been a great friend and supporter of the Unit in his short tenure here at Sir Thomas Rich's.  Especially in is backing for the new Scout Hut building project.  We all wish him well in his future position.

This year saw a good range of ages within the unit and many varying activities being undertaken.   Mention must be made of recently departed unit member Panji Grainger, who has been named as the English Basketball Association's Young Player of the Year.  Congratulations Panji!  Panji has represented England at four different levels from U15 to U23, competing at two European Championships.  Now at Salford University Panji continues his basketball career with Manchester Giants.

A small milestone also was accomplished ... 25 Years of Venture44.
