Tue 30 April – Scout skills night

25 Apr

Normal Night this week 7-9 pm.


We still want to get more scouts to go to “Spring camp Part 2” if the scout or parent interested in the camp could please see a leader on Tuesday.

The two camps of the year are the best part of scouts and we would like to include as many of the scouts (older and newer) to go.




23rd April – St George day parade and scout skill. Early Start!

17 Apr


This week we have an EARLY START. Please meet at the hut at 5.50 PM and we will finish at normal time 9pm at the hut.

We will participate in the Annual St George day parade up to the church in the village and then march back to the hut. We will follow the parade with a normal troop night.


Scouts are expected to attend as we only parade twice a year (other is rememberer Sunday). If you can not make it please leave a comment on this post or email the leader team.

Scouts are expected to turn up in uniform and smart and shoes (school trousers and shoes are fine). If your scout is a new start and has been to cubs or brownie/guides then they can use that uniform.

If your scout is new and hasn’t been to cubs etc smart clothes are fine.

Please feel free for your scout to bring a change of clothes for after the parade because we will likely be playing games on the field.



We have lots of spaces free for the new starters to join us for Spring camp 31st may-2nd June  We do two camps a year and these are some of the highlights of the scout year. All the details are available on the “spring camp page” at the top of the site. I have checked with our GSL and I have been informed that we can accept the girls on this camp to as I have been informed with the leader rules.

If your scout wants to go please inform us on Tuesday and a leader will hand you the appropriate forms.

If you have any questions please email or see a leader on Tuesday.


Plant forms.

If you have any plant forms to return please send them along with your scout.





Tue 16 – First night back / Quiz Night

12 Apr


Back at the hut normal time (7-9) this week.

Subs are £32.50 for this term.

The List of term nights has been updated so please have a look.

We have had confirmation from the scout center that Spring camp Pt2 will be 31 May – 2June.We are presuming that every scout that originally wanted to go still wants to. If any changes please see a leader on Tuesday or email us at . Any scout that wants to go on this camp but couldn’t make the last one please speak to a leader or email.



Tue 9th no scouts and camp update

5 Apr


No scouts next week as Easter holidays are still running.



I have spoken to the scout centre we were going to stay at and they have allowed us to move camp to a new date.

So far the date that the centre and leader team can do is weekend of Fri 31 May to Sun 2 June. This is provisional at the current time but i will be in contact with the parents of the scouts planning on going to the last camp.

If every one involved is happy we will just move the money for camp from the last camp to the new one. this means there is no money needed for those scouts that were all paid up last time.

I will send out more communications ASAP but please email or comment is you have any objections or questions.
