B.P. Centenary Camp - Poland Feb 2007
In February 2006 an e-mail was received from
Alicia Lawniczak, Scout Leader
of the Polish Scout Group 88-uroczysko
I found your e-mail on your group's website and decided to write. I'm a
scouts leader in Poland as well, I have girls and boys age 10-14 in my
group. We would like to contact any English team, write some letters, send
pictures etc as we are taking part in the project "one world one
promise" (I hope you know this project...). Are you interested?
I am waiting for an answer, alunia88 @ op.pl
is my e-mail address. If you want to visit our website as well we invite
Scout Leader Louise
Slee wrote back indicating our interest in communication and learning more.
came another e-mail, this time with an attachment telling us about their
Group with colour pictures. See their letter HELLO
As I promised before, we wrote a short letter describing us. I hope you'll
enjoy it. Please, show it to your scouts. We also send you some pictures
so that you can see us. We're waiting for any answer.
If there are any problems please contact me.

replied, and the Troop made up a letter with photographs which was e-mailed
to Ala. See our reply OUR SCOUT
Ala sent an
e-mail back with a document and photographs explaining...but read on.....

As I promised we write back. We prepared a short letter showing what does
Scouting in Poland look like. I saw the site about European Scouting and I
really liked it. I think we can take part in it with your Group. The 'EUR
hopping' sounds great, it's something we are going to do so we can register
We thought about a name for our project. 'Scouting-connecting people' was
our idea. Now we can just keep changing information about Scouting in Poland
and in England and then make something bigger having this information.
I think it's a great idea what you said in your last letter- about meeting
each other. It's the best thing we can do as a part of our project.
Of course we invite you here, to Szczecin. If you decide to come here just
let me know and we'll think together when and how we can do it.
We're waiting for an answer from your Group and I'm waiting for any answer
from you- about the project and about visiting Poland.
Write back soon
March 2006 - Kate and Alice spent their Troop night composing another letter
explaining all about Scouting in UK. in the meantime Scouts Charlotte, Hanna and
Dan, doing their Photographer badge, were given projects to take some
in our HQ. These were combined with the letter and made up our new bit of
news for our new Polish friends. KATE
& ALICE'S LETTER + CHARLOTTE, HANNA & DAN'S PICS.
