Our Ongoing Projects
Developing our website is one of our main concerns. We want a fun theme with lots of pics on what we do and have to offer. We also intend on adding a wealth of information on badges and other activities. Further we would also like to do the email drives. The idea is to supply every scout with a @1stHenleyscouts.co.za email address to boost comunication between scouts on a local, national and hopefully international level. These email messages would pass through content filters to ensure safe and appropriate use of the system. This is however just an idea and will be discussed at length and tested first. You are welcome to send your comments to the web site administrator: firstname.lastname@example.org
