Guiding our children through life

Natalie Morgan explains how pledging to the Scouts can help our communities

The Scouts, Brownies and Girl Guides have been a part of our society since the early 1900s, all of which have the initial aim of helping to unite young people and support their spiritual and physical development. Being a Brownie myself back in the day, I can confidently say that being part of the ‘Pow-Wows’, earning my badges and making my promise, made me more aware of my actions and how they affected others from a very young age. I always felt a sense of pride wearing my Brownie sash, bright yellow jumper and skort. Feeling part of a team, and a selfless, positive one at that, helped shape my values and morals, which I still hold to this day. However, since they began, these organisations have not only helped those who are directly involved, but have also supported the communities that surround them. The Scouts, Brownies and Guides are now making a more significant impact than ever before, especially on the environment we live in.

About Be Kind

Hello, Most of us are lucky enough to have someone who taught us how to be kind. For me, it was my dad. He showed me how to warm up a cold bumble bee in my hands and how to grow runner beans in the garden. Dad was forever picking up litter wherever we went, rescuing the baby ducklings who had slipped down the drain outside our house, and he taught me to have the utmost respect for all creatures, great and small. As the threats of climate change and plastic pollution weigh heavily on our minds, we spend so much time focusing on looking forward, concerned about the damage we have wreaked on our planet and what the future holds. However, it seems a lot of the answers to our current problems can be found by looking backwards. In this issue we talk about lessons we have learned from past generations, how to adopt a thriftier, more careful attitude to waste and the importance of sharing information. We discuss the valuable lessons we have learned from our families and friends and hope to inspire more people to go back to basics – it might just be the only way to save the world. We also had the pleasure of speaking to Deliciously Ella about making vegetables cool, Mark Griffiths shares the most wonderful images of inspiring open-water swimmers, and the Culinary Caveman gives us his top tips for successful foraging. Enjoy the issue, Phillipa Editor
