Every aspect of the Scouting programme is a story. Get involved, inspire others and tell your everyday Scouting story.

Essex is lucky to have its own central depository for stories about Scouting across the county via an online form available at essexscouts.org.uk/news

Leave a fully formed story or use the prompts to leave detailed notes so a story can be created from your input.

Essex Scouts hopes to share stories via the county website, Facebook (facebook.com/essexscouts) and Twitter (twitter.com/essexscouts) as well as the regular Essex Plus email and on its website.

Take some photos and upload them to the online form or if you have videos or numerous photos contact the team on news@essexscouts.org.uk
