FOSE is an initiative of the European Scout Foundation, individuals can demonstrate their support for the ideals and aspirations of Scouting, by contributing financially to the Movement in Europe. This exciting initiative has huge potential to provide real and visible support to Scouting in Europe in general but particularly to the development and growth of our Movement in central and eastern Europe.



At this year’s Gilwell Reunion, we were able to introduce our new publicity leaflet, website and display banners. Supplies of the leaflet are available and/or requests to borrow the display and banners are welcome.

We were pleased to note that our promotional leaflet was incorporated within The Scout Association’s Report given to those attending its Annual General Meeting in September.

Should any Member hear of any events where they feel it would be appropriate for us to enquire if we may provide information and/or display at District, County or Area Meetings please let me know. It has often been pointed out that we sometimes forget that those who retire from roles within Scouting, particularly Commissioners and/or Chairs of Committees/Presidents, are not always kept informed of ways in which they can continue to support Scouting; not only in the UK but through the Friends of Scouting Europe, European Scout Foundation or, indeed, that of the BP Fellows and World Scout Foundation.

The 18th Annual Gathering of the Friends of Scouting in Europe (FOSE) was held in Dresden from 6th - 9th October 2016. Following the meeting, at 1800 hours a FOSE Reception was held, attended by Members from the Danish International Scout Council.
