All sections start back this week after the Christmas holidays (Beavers and Scouts on 8th and Cubs on 9th). We hope that you all had a great time with family and friends and wish everyone a very Happy New Year.
Here’s to a fun year of scouting and a reminder that we would like as many of you as possible to join us on this year’s Family Camp (26-28 June) – there is still room for all that wish to come – but we do need to know ASAP who else wants to join those families that have already signed up.
The details for Family Camp are in the Camps section of the website.
The last meetings of term are next week on 18th December (Beavers and Scouts) and 19th December (Cubs).
The January term starts on Wednesday 8th January (Beavers and Scouts) and Thursday 9th January 2020.
We hope that you all have a great Christmas and Happy New Year.
Can I remind you all to get your places booked for Family Camp by the end of November as I need to firm up arrangements at the camp site.
The information is all in the note within the camps section.
All, as we do every year the group will be taking part in this event to remember the sacrifices made, by so many, in order that we can live as freely as we do now.
A letter outlining the arrangements has been sent out to all members and is also contained within the news section of the website.
We will also be having our annual group photo – so please make sure that you are there and looking smart.
All, our next jumble sale is on Saturday 12th October (10am – noon and 1pm-3pm)

Well done to all the scouts that came to Patrol Camp last weekend at Polyapes. All hot meals cooked on open fires, plenty of collecting, chopping and sorting wood for their fires, lots of wide games and a 5 mile hike, all squeezed into less than 48 hours – see more pictures in the gallery.
