Dave Saunders

Hi, this is Dave Saunders the GSL for CSG. I've lots of Scouting experience running Cubs, Scouts and Ventures over my life time. I started in West Ewell and became a Queens Scout in 1965 with over 20 others in our Scout Group. It was pretty good - thanks to some devoted leaders - this is what we now have in Cranleigh. So in ten years time we should be rolling out many Queens Scouts here -just think of all those proud mums and dads. .
