Big well done/thanks to the scouts that turned up for remembrance parade!

We had 15 at parade and 5 scouts let us know they couldn’t attend so that still leaves us with 10ish scouts/parents that didn’t tell us that they couldn’t make it!!!!

Big thank you to any one Souts/parents that help set up and clear up for the bonfire. We had a very good scout parent help which was noted by the Group Scout Leader , so thanks for that.

3rd Nov – Halloween party

1 Nov

7-9pm at the hut.

Its non uniform but fancy dress for Halloween (Scary or none scary dress up) and there will be prizes for best costume!

Please read the details below again please and a reminder is that remembrance day is a “must attend” and if you really cant make it you must tell a leader!

The Christmas shopping trip is now back on so please see a leader to find out more.

Please remember the details below:


Our annual Bonfire & Fireworks night will be held on Saturday 7th November on the field at the rear of the Crown Hotel (perhaps better known as Etc). The bonfire will be lit at 6.30 p.m. and the fireworks will be set off starting at 7.00 p.m. The “gates” will be open from 6.00 p.m.

This year we will be selling light-sticks, sweets, some refreshments and mulled wine. Etc will be selling pizza slices, other Italian type food and alcoholic drinks in the marquee. Etc. will be keeping their profits from this which is their return for providing the field for our use. Entrance fee is £5.00 per adult, £2.50 per child (age 2 to 16) and free for explorers/scouts/cubs/beavers who help us to prepare the bonfire.


We would be really grateful if parents and/or explorers/scouts/cubs could help us build the bonfire, put up the marquee, etc. on Saturday morning 9.00 a.m. to 12.00 a.m. and/or make good the field on the following Sunday 2.00 p.m. to 3.00 p.m. Many hands make light work. Old clothes, a spade (and a rake on the Sunday) and gloves are a must. If you have a wheel-barrow then please bring it along!



Explorers, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers should turn up at the St Helens Church Lych Gate at 10.15a.m. The change to the start location is due to the British Legion having been sold. If you are driving it is probably best if you drop explorers, scouts and cubs off at the main church entrance and move smartly on. They can walk through the church grounds to where we will all be waiting. Otherwise I suggest you park in one of the local car parks and walk from there.

Explorers, scouts, cubs and beavers should be dressed in smart, full uniform. Black schoolshoes, black/grey school trousers and a poppy should be worn. A small sum of money for the collection is advisable. Beavers will not attend the church service and will leave the parade at the church entrance at around 10.40 a.m. Parents should collect their Beavers from there.

Always difficult to predict precisely but proceedings should be over by noon at the Lych Gate.

Attendance is regarded as obligatory but if your son / daughter is unable to take part, for good

reason, then please let the relevant section leader know.


Good news! The event is back on, if you are interested in this please see a leader to gain more details.
