Many thanks to everyone that helped make the Jumble a great success – all the money raised is used to maintain and improve our HQ – keep the 13th October free in your calendar for the next one…..
Jumble can be delivered to the scout HQ between 7pm and 9pm on Mon 19th – Thurs 22nd. For large items/amounts of jumble – collection can be arranged by leaving a message on our answerphone – 020 8941 8355.
Just check out the photos taken by our Beavers for their photographers badge below and see the rest on Flickr. They learnt how to take great photos using all different types of camera, phones, tablets etc.
All, have you sent in your booking form for Family Camp 2018? If not, you still have a few weeks to get your forms in – the form is available in the camps section of the website. Make sure you book in and don’t miss out on all the fun!!
We hope that you all have a great Christmas and Happy New Year.
Beavers, Cubs and Scouts starts back in January on Weds 10th, Thurs 11th and Friday 12th respectively
Many thanks to all of the beavers, cubs and scouts that came today for the Remembrance Parade and Group Photo, especially given the cold weather.
As you can see from the photo below we had 46 in attendance – how impressive it would be if we could get an even bigger showing next year from our 80+ members……
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 is contained within the news section of the website and information will also be provided at the first section meetings after half term
We will also be having our annual group photo – so please make sure that you are there and looking smart
Tomorrow 10am -3pm it is the 3rd Hampton Jumble Sale at our HQ – lots of bargains to be had.
Please come down and help us raise funds by grabbing yourself a great deal.
We would also appreciate lots of help, once the selling has finished, to clear away and take down the marquees etc.
Sadly, we have yet again had to cancel this event due to a very low uptake. To be viable we needed to have a certain level of interest and the numbers of ticket requests has fallen significantly short of this.
Apologies to those of you that had intended to come and celebrate with us and chat through old memories of your time within the group.
We are looking at running some sort of event at the HQ maybe later this year or early next to celebrate our continued success as a scout group and the opening of our new kitchen, which should be completed by then allowing us to put on bigger events at the HQ – keep checking the website for more information
We hope that you’ve been having an enjoyable summer – the new scouting term is just around the corner. Beavers start back on Wednesday 6th September, Cubs on Thursday 7th September and Scouts on Friday 15th September.
You should also note that work on the kitchen extension has started and will still be ongoing until mid October – we hope to keep the disruption to a minimum and all sections should be able to function normally whilst the work is completed.
It will be a fantastic new facility once complete – we’re looking forward to many cooking evenings for the Beavers/Cubs and Scouts……
Also, all the information about the scout camps for the coming year and the Group Family Camp in June 2018 is now on the website – please check it out and take the necessary actions re booking.
