Gone Home

It is with great sadness to hear that Bob Liddle passed away peacefully on Tuesday morning, 6th July, at Victoria Hospital. May we extend our sincere condolences to May and the family at this trying time.

Bob had been a stalwart of Rosyth District for over 35 years and had held many roles. He was a member of the Inch Scout Fellowship, and became District Commissioner in 1987, holding that role until 1996. Following that period, Bob served Fife Area as a Commissioner for Development and then for Scout Fellowship. When the East of Scotland Region was formed Bob continued as a Commissioner of the now Scout Active Support until 2016, and continued to support the Inch Active Support. He was awarded a Bar to the Award For Merit in 2016 for his services to Scouting.

Bob Liddle

Bob was enthusiastic in all he did and excelled in organising events, notably the Millenium Camp and the Chief Scout Visit to Dalgety Bay. With his wife May, they checked out and arranged many social events for the Inch Active Support including, weekends away, Christmans dinners, and 9 pin bowling at the Rosyth Civil Service Club. He always had amusing stories and often entertained members with his guitar. Fund raising for Rosyth included the notable Duck Race at Callander and he was instrumental in the Babcock Scout Boat project, that sadly sunk at its moorings.

Bob, you were a true gentleman and friend and epitomised the values of the Scout Movement and will be sorely missed by all who knew you. Rest in Peace, you have served well.

    Risk Assessments

    Following two recent safeguarding incidents, it is clear that effective and adequate Risk Assessments are not being done. Will all Executive committee members and leaders visit Risk Assessments now. Risk assessments are required for all premises, owned or leased, and all activities.

    Note: For re-starting Scouting under COVID-19 regulations, additional RAs are required.

    Membership Records

    All members of TSA are responsible for updating their personal information on Compass. Please check your record is correct - especially contact details i.e. email address, telephone.

    If you are unsure of how to do this, please speak with your line manager/GSL.


    • All leaders please note that a current First Aid or First Response certificate is now required at all times. There are several 'On-line' courses being run to meet the requirements under Covid19. Please check the District Web site or Leaders and Regional Face-book pages.

    • With many of us in forced 'stay at home' due to Covid19, it would also be opportune time to update all other mandatory training including the 6 hours annual requirement, by refreshing the 'Safety' and 'Safeguarding' online Training modules.

    • Information for Adult Training.
      Please visit these pages as we need your help in making Scotland more compliant, in terms of our Safety and Safeguarding rules. Young people's safety must be our primary concern, at all times, but a significant number of our adults are not completing Module 1/1E or Safety/Safeguarding ongoing learning, within the prescribed times. It's really important that everyone is up to date with this training,

    District Diary

    • The District Diary shows all known District events and National, Scottish, and Regional events of interest. This will be maintained with all known dates, but be aware that many events will not be happening due to Covid19.

    • To help leaders in planning programmes, it has been updated to show all school holiday and 'In Service Training' dates up to Summer holidays 2022.

    • To allow District or Regional Teams to schedule visits, it would be very helpful if all major events within the District, i.e. Group AGMs; Fund Raising; and community events, are also added.
