Very Important – Change of meeting place for tonight – 14th December

Due to the poor weather and the forecast for this evening, we have decided to hold the meeting at the Scout Hut, and will rearrange the wide game for the New Year.  Still non uniform this evening.

Fundraising – Tesco bag packing, Sunday 16th December 2012

Tesco carrier bagHelp is needed with our most important fund raising event this Sunday.

We are again allowed to raise funds by helping shoppers at Tesco pack their shopping bags.  This is a great way to raise money for the Troop, and also shows us off to the local community .

We need volunteers (scouts and parents) though to help on Sunday.

Our time slot is between 10:00 and 16:00 and we expect to run 3 shifts.  10-12, 12-2 and 2-4.  Please can you think about which shift you can do, and send an email to the leaders inbox ‘’ before Friday to let us know.  We will confirm the shifts on Friday at Scouts.  We do also need parents to help us make sure that the children are properly supervised, so please offer to help as well.

Thank you for your support.
