Scouts start earlier / Children in Need

Our scouts are trialing an earlier start time, from December, and will now run from 7.00pm to 9.00pm on Wednesdays.

Our Impala Cubs ( Mondays) ran a very successful auction of their pre-loved toys and books etc to raise funds for Children in Need, and raised £125.00,  which the group were proud to match fund – Well done to them.

We wish all our parents / supporters a peaceful break over the year end, after a very full and rewarding scouting year.

New term, new volunteer leader

We welcome Katarina, who has joined the Impeesa Cubs leadership team this term. We hope you enjoy the 1st.

We are always looking for new adult helpers, to support our section leadership teams – – Can you help ?

Once again the Wadley Hut will be used as a Polling Station on the 12th December, so look out for news of the alternative activities arranged for our Riverbank Beavers and Verulam Explorers that day.

Well done to all our Beavers, Cubs ^ Scouts who paraded in Park Street at the Annual Remembrance Day service, we had the honour of leading the parade, with the Union Flag this year
