It’s all change with the Essex Scouts Water Activity Team as Clive Notley steps down as Chairman, Trevor Lawrences retires and the team announces its new Active Support Unit.

Similarly our long serving County Canoe Adviser, Trevor Lawrence has left the team after almost 30 years service in that role in the County and will concentrate his efforts with his Group 1st
