A ‘blog’ is short for ‘weblog’ that is defined as: “a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style.”
There are currently two blogs available on Rachel’s website.
Rachel’s Blog is where Rachel Maclean MP will write informal and conversational style articles to convey ideas or information in a more accessible way. Rachel’s blog includes updates from Westminster in a diary style, along with updates from Rachel’s work in the constituency.
Rachel’s Guest Blog
From time-to-time Rachel will ask guests to write a piece for her website, which will be published as a guest blog post. This allows Rachel’s constituents to hear from other MPs, or directly from Government ministers and others in the community on a wide range of issues.

When people think of Scouts they usually think of outdoor adventures – camping, lighting fires, hiking and so on. Social distancing has obviously had a big impact on what we can do as Scouts, but that hasn’t stopped us from having fun.
