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.

Also Cub Football will be restarting shortly – see the Football blog for details of the first practice session.

Thanks

End of term activities / news

Our scouts took to their bikes for the Annual Cycle Ride on the last meeting of the term,, this year riding the Nickey Line from Harpenden to Hemel Hempstead. ( 14 miles ! ) At the end they said farewell to their popular Asst Leader – John Allam, who has stepped down. Terry Cavender, our  GSL, presented him with a  Thank You Gift.

Meanwhile our marquee team have been busy providing tents for a dog show in Chipperfield, and a holiday club in Redbourn. thanks to them for their hard work.

We look forward to welcoming our young people back in the first week of September.  Check on OSM for the details

AGM feedback

Last nights AGM was only lightly attended, but many positives spin out of the discussions that took place, so thanks to everybody who came along.

We said good bye to two Exec members , Dawn & Julie, many thanks for all you have contributed over the years.

We thanked our retiring Cub Football Managers, and welcome Dan Seeby who has stepped into the shoes. We wish you well this coming season.

We are still looking for more parents to help our sections, either as Asst Leaders or Occasional helpers . Contact me if you are interested.

The next  hut  improvement project is laying a path / between the gate and the steps / disabled ramp. A small sub – committee will be working on this over the Summer break.

Have a good summer break ! See you all in September

Great Camp

What a great group camp we all had last weekend at Tolmers Activity Centre, Cuffley – loads of activities, campfire singsong etc etc.

Thanks to all our leaders / helpers in making it possible
