Founders Day / Thinking Day

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

160 years after the birth of Baden-Powell, Scouting remains strong, with a united friendship of like minded Scouts and leaders throughout the world. Baden-Powell wanted Scouting “to bring up the next generation as useful citizens with a wider outlook than before and thereby to develop goodwill and peace in the world through comradeship and co-operation.”

He saw the Promise and Law as a way to prevent wars and conflicts: “It is the spirit that matters. Our Scout Law and Promise, when we really put them into practice take away all occasion for wars and strife between nations.”

How sad, that in the last year we have seen so many conflicts and so much misery across the world.

Many of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will grow up to become leaders at work, in their communities and even of their countries. As we celebrate Founders Day/Thinking Day, let us help to put the spirit of Scouting in every child in the hope that this spirit will remain with them as they go through life and help them to make good decisions in their adult life.

Together we can make a difference, together we are strongest.

Happy Founders Day

Nico gone home

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce  Nico Grisafi has gone home.  Nico had Scouting in his heart and despite being seriously ill in September, it was his wish to attend the WFIS workshop in Laubach, be part of the 20 years celebrations and say goodbye to his friends.

Nico was a Scout in Italy, in Europe and in the world, a former World President of WFIS a man with a huge amount of Scouting knowledge, he will be a great loss to family, friends and Scouting.

Season’s Greeting

Saturday, December 24th, 2016
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Scouting

It is the time of year when we celebrate and our lives are filled with happiness, as we spend time with families and friends and celebrate Christmas.

This year though, we should spare a thought for those who will not be celebrating and will struggle to be happy, those who’s loved ones have gone home this year and who face the first Christmas with memories, rather than the ones they loved.

Around the world, including some parts of the WFIS Europe region, there are wars and fighting, with many innocent people suffering and we have had natural disasters like the earthquakes in Italy, resulting in the loss of many lives, some of whom were members of WFIS.

Scouting continues through it all and brings happiness and new skills to so many young people, Cub leaders throughout Europe will have happy memories of 100 year celebrations that the Wolf Cubs enjoyed.  2016 was the year we celebrated 20 years of WFIS and looked back at how it started in 1996 with just a few keen members.  Now it has spread throughout the world in a way Baden-Powell would have recognised – a mighty oak from a little acorn.

Yet Christmas is still a time for celebration and the New Year a time for resolutions and time to start again.  So, from the WFIS Steering Committee, enjoy your family and celebrations and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Scouting camps and activities throughout 2017.

Yours in traditional Scouting

Gregor gone home

Sunday, November 20th, 2016
It is with great sadness that the WFIS Steering Committee for Europe, announce the death of Erhard “Gregor” Kreicker, a founder member of WFIS and the longest serving member of the Steering Committee.
 
Gregor had been ill for over  a year and despite a fight to regain health, the illness was too much and he sadly went home on 16th November.
 
He will be greatly missed by his family and all who knew him.
