We are delighted that our Scout team came joint first in this years Derek Turner district competition yesterday, Its fair to say that we have not done too well in this competition over the years, So its really brilliant.  Well done to George, James L, Rohan & Freddy.

The group and all sections will be supporting the St Stephens Parish Remembrance Service in Park Street on Sunday November 11th, assembling at 2.30pm for the march to the Cenotaph. Three wreaths will be laid, by our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Later that day ( at 7.00pm ) the beacon in Greenwood Park will be lit to mark the Centenary of the end of the First World War.

Dates for your diary

The group are busy planning future dates, that are not to be missed !

Firstly there is the excellent St Albans Scout and Guide Gang Show at the Alban Arena between Wed 13th and Sat 16th Feb next year. All sections have ordered tickets, so watch out for more details from your Section Leader.

Secondly set of key dates for your diary – Next Years Group Camp will be at Gilwell Park between Friday 28th June and Sunday 30th June 2019. Its a long while since the group camped there, so its not to be missed. A real adventure !!

A new term is about to start

All our Beaver, Cub and Scout sections are about to restart their weekly meetings, and we really need a few new adult volunteers , to help run these, either as Occasional Helpers or Assistant Leaders.

Please give me a ring if you are interested.
