If you can not attend this week but still need a letter please email 1sttarporleyscouts@gmail.com and ask for one.

Please bring any outstanding subs in too please.


Please see note below from Brum around canoeing :

Dear Parents,

Here is another chance of canoeing for a small number of scouts. The next date will be 25th. The canoeing is carried out on the River Dee near the overhead suspension bridge in Chester.

We use the Boys’ Club (there are girls’ facilities too and plenty of girls from other troops go) for changing facilities and canoe equipment so scouts only need to bring the following with them:

Waterproof top & trousers

Old sweatshirt or similar

(If you have a wet-suit then the above items are not necessary)

Swimming trunks / costume


Spare clothing

Old trainers or pumps

Drink & a snack, e.g. choc. bar

Uniform need not be worn.

Any cuts or broken skin should be well sealed with waterproof plaster or similar before canoeing. After canoeing it is highly advisable that scouts take a bath or shower in the interests of hygiene and safety.

The cost is £5.00 (it has gone up a lot since I last took scouts canoeing there a few years ago but it is still good value) which includes transport.

Scouts should meet me at the Scout Hut at 5.30 p.m. and I would expect to drop them off there at 9.15 p.m. Please ring me or e-mail me if your son /daughter is interested in going and I will book them a place.
