Cheshire hike – 13-14 April 2019

Cheshire hike registration opens soon. Cheshire hike is a two day hike round Cheshire where scouts challenge other scouts from all round the county. The scouts are challenged on map reading, walking and challenges along the way. Scouts will stop over at a group camp site with all the other competitors. Different age groups walk over different distances. Scouts walk in teams of two and carry all their equipment (tent, food, stove etc).

If your scout wants to sign up and participate please call into scouts at the start on Tuesday. We do need patently confirmation that your scout will be able to attend so we do need parents to call in and speak to a leader. If your scout takes part in the hike the troop will cover the costs of registration etc. Cheshire hike is in teams of two similar aged scouts and parents coming with a team will speed things up.

Any questions please call in on Tuesday and speak to a leader.

A very big “well done” to all the scouts that attended remembrance parade. We had a brilliant turn out and every scout behaved brilliant and with the respect the day calls for.

We are planning on supporting the Village hospital carol concert and had a number of scouts up for taking part. The scouts plan to do a short sketch and the event starts at 7pm on 7th Dec. We will come up with sketch and rehearse in scouts but we need to confirm who can attend. Will all parents ask their scouts if they offered to take part.

If your scout wants to help (and will tick of quite a few things for badges) can you please call in to scouts (start or end) and speak to the leader team. We need parents to confirm that scouts can attend.

6th Nov – PL’s game night and first aid

4 Nov

Normal night at the hut 7-9pm.

Pl’s will run some of their favourite games so have a think.

Remembrance parade is this Sunday Info below:


Explorers, Scouts and Cubs should turn up at Burton Square (the small triangle of land between the High Street and Utkinton Road at the Chester end of the High Street) at 10.00 a.m. Please note that the High Street is going to be closed off at 10.00 a.m. in readiness for the parade. Therefore, it is probably best to approach from the northeast end of Forest Road and drop your children off at Woodlands Way from which they can walk down to Burton Square. Otherwise I suggest you park in one of the local car parks and walk from there although your car may be trapped for around 30 minutes. Arrangements for Beavers will be a little different and parents of Beavers will be advised separately by Claire Uzum. Explorers, scouts, cubs and beavers should be dressed in smart, full uniform. Black school shoes, black/grey school trousers and a poppy should be worn. A small sum of money for the collection is advisable. Always difficult to predict precisely but proceedings should be over by noon at the Community Centre.

Attendance by cubs, scouts and explorers 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.
