We hope you’ve all had a wonderful summer holiday and you’re now looking forward to getting back to school (maybe?) and back to scouts, cubs and beavers (definitely!).

Here are the important dates for when section meetings will begin this term.

Beavers and Cubs: first meetings week beginning Monday 12th September

Scouts: Thursday 8th September. Please note that Friday boating sessions have now finished so there will be NO boating 26th Aug or 2nd Sept.

Next paper collection day is on Saturday 3rd September

As always, we really need as many people as possible to help with this so we can get the job done as quickly and easily as we can.  Please get in touch if you think you will be coming along so that we know how many people to expect. We will need at least 2 drivers and 2 driver assistants if you can offer any help with this too.

Bag2School clothes collection

We’ve another date booked for a Bag2School collection on Friday 14th October. Bags should arrive a few weeks before but any bags are accepted. Give your summer wardrobe a clear out and start saving up your clothes to help us raise money for the Group.

We’ve had a facelift!

No more patchwork!

Thanks also to Kathryn for organising a car boot sale trip and everyone who helped to clear out the Hold of many years of accumulated pre-loved items (aka junk!). This has freed up lots of space and will help us start to get our storage more organised – we’ll just have to try hard not to fill it with more junk!
