For International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating the stories of women in Scouting and the contribution they make to our movement. Felicity McNeice is one.
Group Leader and Rover Adviser
Cub Scout Leader.
I wanted adventure, fun and meeting new people.
The wonderful community and people. Also sharing adventures and developing and challenging myself with every event or activity that I undertake.
I don’t think there can ever be one best thing. I loved my time as a Rover Scout with my Crew. The camps, hikes, Moots and our house boat trip. As a leader hiking with other leaders to scatter a Venturer Scout leader (my husband who I met in Rovers) ashes over a mountain top, having a fantastic group camp with a medieval theme, going to Cuboree or Jamboree with my Cub Scouts and Scouts from my group. There are just too many to say one.
Absolutely. Not only does it help you to give back to the community and share your talents, but it helps to develop yours and challenge you out of your comfort zone. It’s also a great way to get out of doors and into nature and among a great and diverse group of people.
Women are usually great at having a sense of sensitivity. I think women in Scouts can show young girls how to be empowered and not restrict themselves just because they are a woman.
I am an executive teacher at the local primary school. A mum of a 19 year old. Like to garden and read and cook.
And obviously camp, hike and enjoy the outdoors
I don’t have one.
No, not really.
Always try your best and give things a go.
