At our recent Lodge zoom meeting it was suggested that we contribute to a tile in the Promise Pathway at Gilwell engraved to recognise the accession of Michael Baden-Powell as the fourth Baron, Gilwell.
The suggestion was unanimously agreed and KLA lodges were asked to contribute to funding this project and purchase a tile for the pathway. The suggestions is for a Square Granite Tile, priced at £500, funded by all KLA member Lodges each donating £20.
This year the Gilwell Reunion was a virtual event with a range of online workshops, videos and discussions. The KLA took the opportunity to run a workshop and attracted around 70 people on the day, despite coinciding with other worthy events.

WOW – we announce our first $1000 donation for the Scout Opportunity Fund. On February 22nd with Scouts NZ we launched the Scout Opportunity Fund as a source of support for children who simply cannot afford to join our Scouts adventure. We’ve received a number of donations but this first $1000 donation is top. It is from a Scout Associate who wrote “I was fortunate to attend the recent reception at Government House and was very impressed with Kate [Te Wano]’s speech.” A very generous contribution indeed.
