They even managed to make the news!

Compass Restoration

Hopefully you will all have heard that the membership system Compass is nearly ready to come back on-line for adult members. A huge amount of work has been done on the system to fix the issues found previously. All testing at HQ has been successfully completed and a phased introduction is being planned with the first phase imminent.

In order to support this locally we have a team of 10 ‘superusers’ who will be supporting the restoration of Compass. More information on how they will be supporting you will be released soon.

There will also be a series of new online user guides to help you

Once the system is live for phase one we will be looking to get the data on the system up to date. Locally we have been keeping records of new adult volunteers, role changes, permits and training but we will need your help to make sure we have everything recorded and accurate.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me at
