Scout meeting Friday 29th June – Hike from Dick Hudson’s to Ilkley

The Scout meeting next Friday is a hike from Dick Hudson’s pub to Ilkley.  Please see below for details of the arrangements.

Can parents please drop children off in the car park at Dick Hudson’s at 19:00 and collect from the Cow & Calf rocks car park at 21:15.  All Scouts must be dressed for walking over the moor, including waterproofs and walking boots.  Remember, Jeans are not suitable trousers for walking in.

Walking boots are essential, and any Scouts who attend but are not wearing walking boots will not be allowed to do the Hike.

We look forward to some dry weather for the hike.


Ben Rhydding Community Fete – Saturday 30th June

We are having a stall at the Ben Rhydding Community Fete next weekend and need help with setting up and running it.

Next Saturday, 30th June, sees the annual fete take place on the old Middle School playing fields in Ben Rhydding.  The Troop will again be running a stall to showcase some of our Scouting and cooking and selling food.  We need Scout volunteers to help with setting up and running it.

PLs and APLs, can you please come down to the playing fields for 11:30 to help with pitching the dining shelters and setting the stall up.  All other Scout volunteers, can you please come down for 13:30 so that we are ready to start greeting visitors when the Fete opens at 14:00.  For the duration of the Fete, can Scouts please wear Uniform Shirt and Necker.  We need as much help as possible, so Scouts, please volunteer and help us out.

The Fete runs from 14:00 – 16:00, so can Scouts please stay until 16:30 to help pack away.

We hope that Parents will visit the Fete and support our stall as well, and of course any help will be gratefully received.
